Scale back your long hopes
to a short period. While we 
speak, time is envious and
is running away from us.
Seize the day, trusting 
little in the future.

Horace 

David Gurteen's comments:
"Carpe diem is the Latin for Seize the day!"



I love this clip from the film "Dead Poet's Society (1989) starring Robin Williams where he says "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary."


Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.
