Colonel Thomas Edward Lawrence (left) vs. Peter O’Toole

.

Potter: “Ouch! It bloody hurts that! So what’s the trick then?”

Lawrence: “The trick, William Potter, is not minding it hurts.”

— scene where Lawrence puts out a lit candle with his fingers (slowly) in “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962), directed by David Lean

.

And that’s how it works in general life too.
