Watching this lovely movie, Eat, Pray love. Apart from totally in awe of someone can throw away a year, to find one self, the magnificent and beautiful scenes, and the amazing food. I am also very inspired by the avalanche of thoughtful quotes.
Luca Spaghetti (Giuseppe Gandini): “Americans. You work too hard, you get burned outYou come home and spend the whole weekend in your pajamas in front of the T.V.”
Liz: “That’s not far off, actually.”
Luca Spaghetti: “But you don’t know pleasure. You have to be told you’ve earned it. You see a commercial that says: ‘It’s Miller Time!’ And you say, That’s right, now I’m going to buy a six pack. And then drink the whole thing and wake up the next morning and you feel terrible. But an Italian doesn’t need to be told. He walks by a sign that says: You deserve a break today. And he says, Yes, I know. That’s why I’m planning on taking a break at noon to go over to your house and sleep…with your wife!”
Giovanni(Luca Argentero): “We call it “dolce far niente”, the sweetness of doing nothing.”
YHear, hear, we cannot be more stressed, spending our life time earning treats. Passing exams as children, climbing that tree, making more money as adults, buying bigger cars, and yet we just need to have a small break from time to time, one little break. One at a time.
