Life Lessons from Movies

The Dish

In Comedy, Movies on February 11, 2015 at 9:35 PM

The Dish (2000) is a comedy co-written and directed by Rob Sitch about the scientists and technicians at Parkes Observatory in Australia who used a massive 64 meter radio telescope to help NASA broadcast the 1969 Apolo 11 lunar landing.

Life Lesson:

Sometimes you have to take risks.

Movie Scene:

Cliff Buxton (Sam Neill): “Isn’t that odd?”

Glenn Latham (Tom Long): “What?”

Cliff: “Well, that I was more scared than excited.”

Glenn: “I don’t think that’s odd. I feel like that all the time…  How come you changed?”

Cliff: “My wife said something. She said, ‘failure is never quite so frightening as regret’.”

Glenn: “Oh, that’s good advice.”

Cliff: “Yeah, pretty good, huh?”

Glenn: “I wish someone would tell me that.”
