"Sucking the marrow out of life doesn't mean choking on the bone.""There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for."
Dead Poets Society 4
Not sure if this next quote counts as it is from a poem that is quoted in the movie. I might be breaking the rules here Gebre!
While we are all sinners and fall short of God's glory it is also from Walt Whitman who allegedly lived a very questionable life to say the least. Then again who am I to judge and the man wrote some great poems near as I can tell..."...what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. "That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"
Interesting to me that as a young man searching for something
this poem was very powerful indeed. Now that I know what I'm searching for, and strive to grow in the author of this powerful play we call life, this poem means more than I could have possibly imagined back then. God's grace is surely given freely to all for it has been given to a fool like me.
Lord God I love you, have mercy, and continue to purify my sinful heart. Continue to bless me with the Holy Spirit strengthening my faith for my faith is still weak. Forgive me Lord Jesus, I have little faith.
What will my verse be? Hopefully whatever God wills. This morning let me begin by offering peace, grace, and love to you all.
