My n-th impression on the movie - Dead Poets Society

Tonight I recapped one of my all time famous movie - Dead Poets Society. Every time I watch this movie I feel pleasure and sorrow both at the same time. It just gets better and better. I dunno if I said the same thing about other movies - even if I say so, that list would be really short.


There is lots of things to learn from this movie. As one commenter rightly said in imbd comments - "There is so much good about this movie". I don't want to write more about this movie. I just want to recite one of poems mentioned in the movie. Its by Robert Herrick. The poem titled - "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 to-day
To-morrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may, go marry:
For having lost but once your prime,
You may for ever tarry.


Poem quoted from wikipedia.

P.S: I remember now where I have seen this movie for the first time. It was in 2001 - In a film festival arranged by BUET-98 Electrical batch. I was young and I just believed in a movie there has to love affairs or great fights. I was so wrong. This movie showed me another world - movies are not just about romance and fights, it can also perfectly portray our day to day life and doing that it can just be extra-ordinary.

Carpe Diem
