they’re important. the power of written words help us progress. it is the most influential and most dynamic discovery of human history. things recorded, poetry, laws, speeches preserved; powerful and transforming things. verbally as important, tying head to heart, person to person, creator to creation. they must be used carefully and thoughtfully. the smallest word can save or destroy another.
St. Francis of Assisi’s Poetry | Canticum fratris solis vel Laudes creaturarum | The Canticle of the Sun | circa 1224
Most high and all powerful Lord. Yours be the praise, the glory, the honor and all good-tidings. To you alone are they reserved and no man is worthy of them.
Praised be my Lord for all your creatures especially Brother Sun, who illuminates us by day, for he is beautiful and radiant in great splendor and carries You, oh most High, as a sign.
John Keating | Dead Poet’s Society | 1989
I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.
See, the world looks very different from up here. You don’t believe me? Come see for yourselves. Come on. Come on! Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it in another way. Even though it may seem silly, or wrong, you must try.
Now, when you read, don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think. Boys, you must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all.
Thoreau said, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Don’t be resigned to that. Break out! Don’t just walk off the edge like lemons, look around you. There ya go! Yes!
Dare to strike out and find new ground!
