A Bit On The Bright Side

Looking on the bright side of life, as in the song from “Life of Brian” by Monty Python is my preferred approach in life.  It is said that whilst the cast were filming the last scene of “Life of Brian” they were all bored and hot sitting up on their crucifixes, so Eric Idle started singing a little ditty. Everyone except Eric liked it so much that they decided to use it, and the song is now firmly set in film history.  The lyrics have been used countless times in speeches in the UK and around the world.  And having been asked to participate in a 3 Day Quote Challenge by https://spencesgirl.wordpress.com/ I’ve taken a shot at it today looking on the bright side –

The rules to this challenge are:

Post on 3 consecutive days
Post one to three quotes per day
Challenge three different bloggers each day

My first choice of quote is a wise one from the very British and slightly wacky Dame Vivienne Isabel Westwood DBE RDI, a fashion designer and businesswoman, born in 1941, and largely responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream –

Secondly, a funny one –

And finally, from Loretta LaRoche, an acclaimed speaker and author who I very much admire – words which are actually the title of one of her books, and always strike a note with me.
