Thoughts on Life Wednesay

This is one of the best speeches every given by Robin Williams. He speaks a truth that few acknowledge and one that is becoming increasingly lost in modern times. So often in our pursuit of the dollar, we forget about the pursuit of our passions. We waylay poetry and art in schools because they are underfunded. We forget to pursue happiness because we want to pursue the ideal of “success”.

I doubt a lot of you have seen this movie, featuring many of our favorite Hollywood men, entitled “Dead Poets Society”, but I encourage you to go find a copy if you haven’t. It is definitely a movie worth seeing. One that is more about heart than aliens who blow stuff up but might teach you something about yourself and the world around you.
