"Boys, 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!"
— Dead Poets’ Society. (via fuckyeahdeadpoetssociety) Don’t be resigned, indeed.

Why yes, I did watch Dead Poets Society on Ovation last night.
“O to have life henceforth a poem of new joys!
To dance, clap hands, exult, shout, skip, leap, roll on, float on!
To be a sailor of the world bound for all ports,
A ship itself, (see indeed these sails I spread to the sun and air,)
A swift and swelling ship full of rich words, full of joys.”
- Walt Whitman, A Song of Joys
