"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?"
~ John Keating Quotes from Dead Poets Society
"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."
-Leonardo da Vinci
"I dream my painting and I paint my dream."
-Vincent van Gogh
