Sometimes in life people can come along and touch our lives in unexpected ways This was the case with Mr Keating and the boys in the movie Dead Poets Society He taught the boys so many lessons that they would have never learned from any other teacher By looking at scenes from the movie and lines from the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman we can see just how important the lessons were that Keating was trying to teach the boys Mr Keating reminded them to seize each day and cherish them dearly From the very first day that Mr Keating walked into the classroom you could see that he had an original method of teaching A middle age man came into class whistling and then proceeded to take the boys outside the classroom to read them a poem and announced that they c could call him Captain O Captain His first important lesson was Carpe Diem which means seize the day He was trying to tell them that everyday opportunities await us and we must decide whether to take a chance or play it safe Mr Keatting also encouraged them to take risks for nothing is gained without them gather the roses while ye may because one day you are going to die Pictures of former alumni who were once where they were standing but they are now dead This idea is related with something Ralph Waldo Emerson once said It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person always do what you are afraid to do Another great mind Whitman once said in the poem Song of Myself I celebrate myself and sing myself I think what they were all trying to say is that you have to love your self and live for each and every moment while we still can Besides Carpe Diem Keating also taught the boys to walk their own
