“What Will Your Verse Be?” from Dead Poet’s Society

To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?” ~Dead Poets Society

  1. This is so damn good. It gives me goosebumps. I’m guessing Robin Williams didn’t write the screenplay to give himself those words, but he delivered them beautifully. And that makes me so very sad that the world lost him last year. He was an amazing human being who gave many verses, and I bet he had many more to give, too.
