Jawaharlal Nehru was the first Prime Minister of India and ruled from India’s independence in 1947 until his death in 1964. He was a central figure in politics both before and after independence and ‘is considered to be the architect of the modern Indian nation-state: a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic republic.’ (Wiki) He was a prolific writer, and had a number of books published including historical accounts of Indian history, his autobiography and a collection of letters he wrote to his daughter when she was a child at boarding school.
This quote is a wonderful reminder of the need to have a positive attitude in order to appreciate and enjoy the wonders of the world around us.
For our third trip to Japan, earlier this year we travelled in spring – our first two visits had both been in autumn. Serendipity resulted in a visit to Hikone Castle during the peak of Sakura (cherry blossom) season.

I always think that approaching life with a positive attitude is the best way to be. With travelling as the quote suggests the very same is true; if you’re closed off and in a negative place your not open to admire the beauty in the world.
Yes, a positive attitude and open mind are key to being able to recognise and appreciate the beauty you encounter, in life and on one’s travels.
I think the ‘with our eyes open’ bit is really important. I’m really trying to focus on mindfulness these days!
Totally agree, I think it’s easy to tune out of the wider world around us sometimes, and being mindful to look for and find that beauty is a good tip.
Such a gorgeous quote and exactly as I try to think. It isn’t always easy, especially when you have a career or children or other commitments but life in itself is an adventure and you just have to make yourself see it.
Yes, totally agree. The realities of life mean that we have to find balance, but as you say, it’s about finding the beauty and the adventure even in one’s everyday life, not just during holidays or celebrations.
