In your dreams?

When you're awake?

Dead people, like in graves and
coffins?

Walking around, like regular
people. They don't see each
other. They only see what they 
want to see. They don't know
they're dead.

             MALCOLM
How often do you see them?

             COLE
All the time. They're everywhere.

You won't tell anyone my secret,
right?

12. "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary." - John Keating, Dead Poets Society.

In the Dead Poets Society (1989) movie, John Keating played by Robin Williams says "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary."

The movie quote:

             KEATING
Mr. Pitts, where are you?

Mr. Pitts, would you open your hymnal to 
page 542 and read the first stanza of the 
poem you find there?

             PITTS
"To the virgins, to make much of time"?

             KEATING
Yes, that's the one. Somewhat appropriate,
isn't it.

             PITTS
"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, old
time is still a flying, and this same
flower that smiles today, tomorrow will
be dying."

             KEATING
Thank you Mr. Pitts. "Gather ye rosebuds
while ye may." The Latin term for that
sentiment is Carpe Diem. Now who knows
what that means?

       		MEEKS
Carpe Diem. That's "seize the day."

             KEATING
Very good, Mr.-

             MEEKS
Meeks.

             KEATING
Meeks. Another unusual name. Seize the
day. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may.
Why does the writer use these lines?

             CHARLIE
Because he's in a hurry.

             KEATING
No, ding!

Thank you for playing anyway. Because we
are food for worms lads. Because, believe
it or not, each and every one of us in
this room is one day going to stop
breathing, turn cold, and die. 

Now I would like you to step forward over
here and peruse some of the faces from
the past. You've walked past them many
times. I don't think you've really looked
at them.

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 gentlmen, 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.

Hear it?

Carpe. Carpe. 

Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys.
Make your lives extraordinary.

Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary. - John Keating, Dead Poets Society.
