Many remember the frightening-but-truthful speech posed by Mr Keating in Dead Poet’s Society after he had the class staring at a photo of old students. He said, “You see, gentlemen, these boys are now fertilising daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, Lean in. Listen… Do you hear it? *whispers* Carpe. *whispers again* Carpe Diem. Seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.” Similarly, Saul Bellow’s Dr Tamkin explained his philosophy of living in the NOW by saying, “Nature only knows one thing, and that's the present. Present, present, eternal present, like a big, huge, giant wave-colossal, bright and beautiful, full of life and death, climbing into the sky, standing in the seas."
