Baisers voles!

As I mentioned earlier, my new found love of black-n-white movies is taking over. This started after "Casablanca" and now involves french classics; which have been a delight (fashion statements included).

This weekend I came across an interesting movie "stolen kisses", its part of a series of movies about a young man: antoine et his amour: christine.

At first, the movie struck me as bizarre, and sans a proper plot. But then I was told that Francios Tuffaut's movies have a profound meaning behind the story being told, which kinda made it more entertaining.

Now that I bored u with this intro, I want to share a part of the movie I found interesting..

In his movie, there was a guy who had it all, a great career, impeccable health, a gorgeous wife.. Wealth and everything that came with it. But he had one little problem that stopped him from being a happy person, so he went to a private investigator inorder to find happiness: " People don't seem to like me!" He said. " People who work for me argue with everything I say, my wife laughs with everyone except when I crack a joke, and people just hate me. I need you to find out why." When asked why he didn't take his problem to a therapist, he said he wanted a fast answer and couldt care about hours spent on a couch discussing possibilities. He wanted answers.

Which to me says: success is measured by relationships, not achievements.

What does this story tell you?

- to classics! xx

No no no.. relationships follow achievements..

Like the saying:

رأيت الناس قد مالوا
إلى من عنده مالٌ
ومن لا عنده مالُ
فعنه الناس قد مالوا

Some relationships are in fact achievements ;p
