  • “ You’re hurt because it was temporary—
    of fucking course it was temporary.
    No lover knows the meaning of forever
    when they press it against the seam of your lips—
    that’s not the point.
    That isn’t what matters.
    What matters is they wanted it:
    Right in that moment, they wanted you
    for the rest of their life,
    every atom in their being,
    they vibrated with it—
    with how much they believed it could be true.
    That’s what matters.
    Of course it ended.
    We’re infants taking shots at eternity
    and yet we exist for barely a blink
    in the fabric of time.
    Of course it was temporary.
    Everything is temporary.
    It’s not meaningless
    if it mattered.
    Even if only once.
    Even if not forever.
    Even if forever
    is something we’re never
    going to get. ”

    No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

    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.

    (Dead Poets Society, 1989)
