Description
Dead Poets Society is my all-time favorite movie. John Keating is my idea of what every teacher should be... :)

John Keating:

They’re not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they’re destined for great things, just like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you.

Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils.

But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? Carpe - hear it? - Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary."

John Keating:

"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry, because we are members of the human race.

And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life.

But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."

John Keating:

To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?"

Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.

That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

John Keating:

"You must strive to find your own voice, because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all.

Thoreau said, "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation." Don’t be resigned to that. Break out!"

John Keating:

"I always thought the idea of education was to learn to think for yourself."

John Keating:

"Sucking the marrow out of life doesn’t mean choking on the bone."

John Keating:

"Now we all have a great need for acceptance, but you must trust that your beliefs are unique, your own, even though others may think them odd or unpopular, even though the herd may go,

(imitating a goat)

"That’s baaaaad." Robert Frost said, "Two roads diverged in a wood and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
