Dead Poets Society (1989) – Henry David Thoreau scene


I’ll now read the traditional opening message by society member Henry David Thoreau. “I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life.” I’ll second that. “To put to rout all that was not life, and not, when I had come to die,
discover that I had not lived.”

  1. I wander witch is greater: the pleasures that we can harness today or the delights that we will surely get tomorrow?
    I lost a long distance relationship for I could not provide the happiness in the current moment, so do we always choose to live today and be less mindful of tomorrow?
