oh what a day

“Oh, what a day… What a lovely day!”

From: Mad Max: Fury Road

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Nux

The story behind the quote: This quote comes from Mad Max: Fury Road. This is the fourth installment of the Mad Max series of films which takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where gangs ravage the wasteland and scavenge for whatever food and fuel is left. In this entry, Mad Max (played this time by Tom Hardy) joins forces with Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron) as the latter tries to rescue a group of girls from a savage gang leader named Immortan Joe.

The quote comes from early in the film. Furiosa steers her tanker into a sandstorm in the hopes of shaking off a group of Immortan Joe’s party. The chasing party drives into the storm as well, leading to some of their deaths. However, one driver, Nux (played by Nicolas Hoult), manages to survive. As he has been trained since birth to treat death as a glorious new phase of life, he utters the quote in glee.

Geek wisdom: Always start out each day with a positive outlook. We do have a tendency to look at the day ahead with gloom because of various circumstances. But you never know. The day ahead may also be one of the best days of your life. Try to think positive and look forward to the day because it just may be one of the most fruitful ones you may experience.
