The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011) : Quotes from Evelyn

I just realized that I have not been writing seriously for this blog. All I've ever done is to write what other people could already have in their mind, and that's what I cared for. I never gave myself a chance to be heard. This is my blog after all, and the sole reason this was created was for me to voice out my sentiments. Thanks to Evelyn in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel that I now figured why I'm not doing this blog any justice. I'd like to remember the beautiful quotes that Evelyn pointed out in the movie.

***

There is no past that we can bring back by longing for it. Only a present that builds and creates itself as the past withdraws (Evelyn).

Can there be anywhere else in the world that is such an assault on the senses? Those who know the country of old just go about their business. But nothing can prepare the uninitiated for this riot of noise and color. For the heat, the motion; the perpetual teeming crowds (Evelyn).

The person who risks nothing, does nothing. Has nothing (Evelyn)

Initially you're overwhelmed. But gradually you realize it's like a wave. Resist, and you'll be knocked over. Dive into it, and you'll swim out the other side (Evelyn)
