the winnning strategy

The movie Finding Forrester has many memorable moments. I quote a dialogue by Sean Connery to Rob Brown when Rob is not clear how to win the heart of the girl he likes. Sean says:

"The key to a woman's heart is an unexpected gift at an unexpected time."

When I heard this line for the first time, the first thing that struck me was the confidence with which these lines were delivered. Nobody can be so sure about women. I mean it could have been a conversation or a discussion or a suggestion. It was a statement.

Surprise has an element of fascination that charms men and women alike. What may possibly set women apart is the alacrity to accept gifts and the penchant for adventure.

So next time when you have to win a heart, remember these two things. Unexpected gift. Unexpected time.
