Audrey Tautou,柯德莉塔圖,一頭清新的短卷髮
微微的嘴角輕輕向上彎已經迷到眾生
娃娃臉的背後究竟是甚麼威力令她一舉成名?

成為法國「女人味」代言人的她,柯德莉塔圖原來是一位滿強悍,處事認真的女強人.
作為家中的長女,處事堅強獨立.思考理性,事事要尋根究底.閒時的她愛看籃球足球比賽,對時裝漠不關心.

處事強桿的塔圖, 實是外硬內軟, 男人性格女人心. 也因此而建立了她一套的獨特哲學.
「我無時無刻不在懷疑!我從未對自己的任何決定感到自信.」
明明事事要尋根究底問原因,事情理應越搞越清但卻令塔圖更加爭扎.
往往就是當你把事情的真相挖出來,你才發現決定並不是那麼的容易.
這種爭扎是令人卻步的障礙?還是推人進步的動力?
塔圖,繼續冷靜說道:
「然而,正是對自己的懷疑促使我們進步,難道不是嗎?」
面對風浪時還能看穿自己的爭扎軟弱,站得不穩但繼續站立.
你說柯德莉塔圖是強還是弱?

美麗可人兒至今還未結婚,
塔圖對愛情也有她的一套哲學呢.
「愛情…愛別人的人都是脆弱的.
也就是說,一個無休止去愛的人,就是愛虐狂.
的確,愛情就是某種受虐.
是的,我相信受虐.」

「頹青」,「hea」,「懶」,「撻皮」這一系列去形容懶人的字眼看似負面,
但原來做個懶人,是長命妙方呢!

「早起並且整日忙忙碌碌的人平均年齡較短,
而想要讓身體處於健康狀態,懶散的生活方式是關鍵」

「如果你希望長壽,一半的自由支配時間應該被『浪費』掉。」

英國公共健康專家 彼得 阿科斯特


「「人們習慣上將走神兒與注意力不集中等消極的東西聯繫起來。
但研究表明,大腦在我們做白日夢的時候非常活躍,活躍程度遠遠超過我們聚精會神工作的時候。」

英國不列顛哥倫比亞大學心理學教授卡麗娜克里斯托夫

所以閒時遠離一下繁重工作,或關掉MSN,Facebook,獨白兒發一個大白日夢,
也是一種另類養生妙法呀

The story of a fisherman – <<The Why Cafe>>

A businessman went on vacation to get away from it all, to “recharge his battery”. He flew to this faraway location and wandered into a small village. Over the course of a few days, he watched the people in the community and noticed there was one fisherman in particular who seemed the happiest and the most content of everyone. The businessman was curious about this, so one day he approached the fisherman and asked him what he did every day.

The man replied that he woke up every morning and had breakfast with his wife and children. Then his kids had breakfast with his wife and children. Then his kids would go off to school, he would go fishing, and his wife world paint. He would fish for a few hours, return with enough fish for the family meals, and then he would take a nap. After dinner, he and his wife would take a walk along the beach and watch the sunset while the kids swam in the ocean.

The buisnessman was stunned. “You do this every day?” he asked.

“Most days,” replied the fisherman. “Sometimes we do other things, but for the most part, yes, this is my life.”

“And every day you can catch fish?” asked the buisnessman.

“Yes,” replied the fisherman. “There are many fish.”

“Can you catch more than just the fish you bring home for your family?” inquired the businessman.

The fisherman looked at him, smiled, and replied, “Oh yes, I oftern catch many more and just let them go. You see, I love fishing.”

“Well, why don’t you fish all day and catch as many as you can? asked the  businessman. “Then you could sell the fish and make lots of money. Pretty soon you could buy a second boat, and then a third boat, and their fishermen could catch lots of fish, too. In a few years you could have an office in a major city, and I bet within ten years you could have an international fish distribution business.”

The fisherman siled again at the businessman, “Why would I do all that?”

“Well, for the money,” replied the businessman. “You would do it so you could get lots of money and then retire.”

“And what would I do when I retired?” asked the fisherman, still smiling.

“Well, whatever you want, I suppose.” said the businessman

“For instance, maybe I could eat breakfast with my family?”

“Yes, I guess so,” said the businessman, a little annoyed that the fisherman wasn’t more excited about his idea.

“And if I wanted to , since I love fishing so much, I could fish a little bit each day?” the fisherman continued.

“I don’t see why not,” said the businessman. “There probably won’t be as many fish by then, but there should still be some.”

“Then perhaps I could spend my evenings with my wife, walking along the beach and watching the sunset, while our children swam in the ocean?” inquired the fisherman.

“Sure, whatever you want, although by then your kids will probably be grown,” said the businessman.

The fisherman smiled at the other man, shook his hand, and wished him well on his efforts to recharge.
