Dead Poets Society (1989)
John Keating: 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. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; 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?

"I am the brother of Elia Martell. And do you know why I’ve come all the way to this stinking sh*t pile of a city? For you. I am going to hear you confess before you die: You raped my sister. You murdered her. You killed her children. Say it now, and we can make this quick. Say it. You raped her! You murdered her! You killed her children. You raped her! You murdered her! You killed her children! YOU RAPED HER! YOU MURDERED HER! YOU KILLED HER CHILDREN! You’re dying? No, no, no, you can’t die yet. You haven’t confessed! Say it. Say her name: Elia Martell. You raped her. You killed her children. Elia Martell! Who gave you the order? WHO GAVE YOU THE ORDER?! Say her name! You raped her! You murdered her! You killed her children! Say it! Say her name! SAY IT!" - Oberyn
Game Of Thrones Spoilers - Spoil it for me and I shall spoil you
"For the internet is dark and full of spoilers."
Okay people, I know you all are excited about the events that happened but there are a few who already know all the major events that have happened in the books and still are eager to watch the TV show because of their pure fervent predilection to the show.
For the love of GoT, stop the spoilers!
We don’t believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise.
We’re trying to separate the private side and the public side. It’s just that we’re a little bit embarrassed by the whole thing. We don’t want to play this star system thing. We don’t want to get recognized in the streets. Yes. Everyone has accepted us using masks in photos so far, which makes us happy. Maybe sometimes people are a little bit disappointed but that’s the only way we want to do it. We think the music is the most personal thing we can give. The rest is just about people taking themselves seriously, which is all very boring sometimes.
