Attitude – it changes perspective

I watched a British movie last night called “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel“[this link is to more quotes from the movie]. I was hoping to see my wife laughing to the point where she gets tears in her eyes. Alas, not this time.

There is one point in the movie where one of the dowagers asks a man why he likes India so much and his answer made me think.  (the hotel is in India, and the hotel lacks most of the 5 stars the guests anticipated).

Many quotes in this movie, but I will share just three: In the first one, Jean has been hiding out at the hotel all day, every day, reading a book while Graham has been exploring every day.

Jean: “How can you bear this country? What do you see that I don’t?”
Graham: “The light, colors, the smiles, it teaches me something.”

Continuation of the above discussion regarding what was striking and appealing about India:  “The way people see life as a privilege and not as a right.”  [I really liked this comment, and it is true the people in India seemed very content]

Norman is a senior’s senior but is quite transparent about his love for the ladies, and desire for more than a platonic friendship.

Madge: “You’re not worried about the danger of having sex at your age?”
Norman: “If she dies, she dies…”

And on that note – attitude makes life everything especially better, what else can we control?

If you rent the movie, I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for reading, hope you have a great day.

And now for Elton John fans – Bennie & the Jets , and then try not to hum this song all night long !
