Carpe diem

Carpe diem : The most famous filmic use of the phrase was in Peter Weir's 1989 film Dead Poets Society, wherein the saying was used pivotally. The first time it is used in the film is when Robin Williams' character gives a short speech to his English class:
"But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? — Carpe — hear it? — Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary. "

Very inspirational. Check it out if you have not seen it and make your life extraordinary.
