‘But you look Marvelous!’

The informant shares his Uncle’s proverb:

Uncle Jeff’s Proverb

“It’s not about how you feel, it’s about how you look, and you look marvelous”

This is a saying my informant’s uncle uses whenever someone is complaining around him. It’s a funny way to tell the person to stop complaining while also making light of the situation and turning it around to a positive thing at the same time, effectively disseminating tension and providing a laugh.
