Love & Romance
Beauty, Romance, Love … these are what we stay alive for!
No matter what anyone tells you, words and ideas can change the world. You may think that 19th Century literature has nothing to do with business or medical school … maybe … You may believe that we should simply go quietly about the business of achieving other ambitions … We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute! We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race … And the human race is filled with Passion! Medicine, Law, Business, Engineering – these are normal pursuits and necessary to sustain life but Poetry, Beauty, Romance, Love … these are what we stay alive for!
from the movie ‘Dead Poets Society’
John Keats, played by the late Robin Williams
