This phrase stayed with me long after the movie was over.
I am a huge admirer of Judi Dench and I think she did more than an awesome job as the legendary M. in the James Bond series.
The M. she played was a woman who was fierce, tough, intelligent, fearless, determined, responsible and pretty eloquent.
The above phrase is being said by M when, in a very critical time for the MI6, her supervisor advises her to rather retire than risk any further setbacks or even damage.
So yeah, when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
M. prefers to do her own thing, in her own way, get the job done rather than think of herself or what others might say about her.
Do your job people. Choose your own path, decide where you want to go and how you are going to achieve it and go your own way.
No matter what.
Have a lovely week everyone.
