"I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world."
Those fans of "The Dead Poet's Society" among you should be feeling a severe warming trend around the cauckles of your heart.
I find myself, in this season, thinking about that piece of cinematic brilliance, and bemoaning the fact that I do not own it.
When I hit the times of my deepest troubles, I play scenes and quotes from that movie in my head, whisper the quotes to myself.
"Sucking the marrow out of life doesn't mean choking on the bone."
It takes a lot to give me chills a second time through, but that movie does it.
My favorite is the above quote from Walt Whitman:
It holds so much power, so much drama.
Think about it again: "I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world."
What you have to say is important--sound your YAWP whenever you can, wherever you want to, however you must.
