If we seek first the Kingdom of God and live as we should, all the rest of life seems to fall into place and wonderful things happen.

A Quote by Peter "Dale" Wimbrow, Sr. on authors, cheating, clarity, danger, day, difficulty, fatherhood, friendship, honesty, information, judgment, life, mind, money, motherhood, poetry, rest, reward, sons, struggle, tears, thought, time, wives, and wor

Peter "Dale" Wimbrow Sr. wrote the poem "The Guy in the Glass" in 1934. It was first published in The American Magazine at that time and the copyright was subsequently assigned to the author. The poem has become also known, incorrectly, as "The Man in the Glass," but the thought is the same. The message is clear. You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years, but you can't fool the guy staring back in the mirror. Since it was published, it has taken on a life of its' own and is usually seen as anonymous, but occasionally with someone falsely taking credit. Why would someone falsely take credit for a poem about being honest with one's self? For more information, see The Official Guy in the Glass website at www.theguyintheglass.com. The author's son, Peter Dale Wimbrow, Jr., may be contacted by e-mail at: pwimbrow@usacomputer.com. The Guy in the Glass When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,* And the world makes you King for a day, Then go to the mirror and look at yourself, And see what that guy has to say. For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife, Who judgment upon you must pass. The feller whose verdict counts most in your life Is the guy staring back from the glass. He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest, For he's with you clear up to the end, And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test If the guy in the glass is your friend. You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum, And think you're a wonderful guy, But the man in the glass says you're only a bum If you can't look him straight in the eye. You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years, And get pats on the back as you pass, But your final reward will be heartaches and tears If you've cheated the guy in the glass. * pelf: money, riches

The Guy in the Glass

by Dale Wimbrow, (c) 1934


When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,

And the world makes you King for a day,

Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,

And see what that guy has to say.

 

For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife,

Who judgement upon you must pass.

The feller whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the guy staring back from the glass.

 

He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest,

For he's with you clear up to the end,

And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test

If the guy in the glass is your friend.

 

You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum,

And think you're a wonderful guy,

But the man in the glass says you're only a bum

If you can't look him straight in the eye.

 

You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,

And get pats on the back as you pass,

But your final reward will be heartaches and tears

If you've cheated the guy in the glass.

A Quote by William Clark Gable on belief, entrepreneurs, patriotism, rest, and war

Only interested in himself and profiting from the war as an unscrupulous entrepreneur, and not in being a patriot: "I believe in Rhett Butler. He's the only cause I know. The rest doesn't mean much to me."

Clark Gable (1901 - 1960)

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on acting, blindness, colors, confusion, good, honor, kindness, knowledge, love, lust, men, music, play, reason, rest, vision, wisdom, and world

You train your eye and your vision lusts after color. You train your ear, and you long for delightful sound. You delight in doing good, and your natural kindness is blown out of shape. You delight in righteousness, and you become righteous beyond all reason. You overdo liturgy, and you turn into a ham actor. Overdo your love of music, and you play corn. Love of wisdom leads to wise contriving. Love of knowledge leads to faultfinding. If men would stay as they really are, taking or leaving these eight delights would make no difference. But if they will not rest in their right state, the eight delights develop like malignant tumors. The world falls into confusion. Since men honour these delights, and lust after them, the world has gone stone-blind. When the delight is over, they still will not let go of it. . . .

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on exercise, rest, thought, and taoism

To exercise no-thought and rest in nothing is the first step toward resting in Tao. To start from nowhere and follow no road is the first step toward attaining Tao.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on clarity, direction, intuition, men, opposites, relationships, rest, thought, understanding, and taoism

Tao is obscured when men understand only one pair of opposites, or concentrate only on a partial aspect of being. Then clear expression also becomes muddled by mere wordplay, affirming this one aspect and denying all the rest. The pivot of Tao passes through the center where all affirmations and denials converge. He who grasps the pivot is at the still-point from which all movements and oppositions can be seen in their right relationship... Abandoning all thought of imposing a limit or taking sides, he rests in direct intuition.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on age, body, creation, death, good, life, rest, universe, and work

Tzu Li went to see Tzu Lai who was dying. Leaning against the door, he said, 'Great is the Creator! What will he make of you now? Will he make you into a rat's liver? Will he make you into an insect's leg?' Tzu-Lai replied, 'The universe gave me my body so I may be carried, my life so I may work, my old age so I may repose, and my death so I may rest. To regard life as good is the way to regard death as good. . . . If I regard the universe as a great furnace and creation as a master foundryman, why should anywhere I go not be all right?'

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)
