Carpe Diem

"Make your life extraordinary!"

In the film Dead Poets Society Robin Williams tells his students, "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary."

Carpe Diem is Latin and it means to "Seize the day." Robin Williams' character has the students look at pictures of past students. He even has them read part of the poem "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time"

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

The poem is urging you to hurry, get up and do something because time keeps moving. Time doesn't stop.

Make the most of life and don't just sit around and do nothing. The day is full, the day is wonderful, go and enjoy it.
