Stop Wasting Time, Experience Your Life

文 死亡诗社

Believe or not, each one of usin this room is one day going tostop breathing, turn cold and die.

I'd like you to step forward ①of you and peruse ② some of thefaces from the past.

You havewalked past them many times.don't think you've really looked athem.

They're not that differenfrom you, are they?

Same haircutsFull of hormones. Just like youInvincible ③ just like you fell.

Theworld is their oyster④.

They believethey're destined for great thingsjust like many of you, their eyes arefull of hope, just like you. Did theywait until it was too late to makefrom their lives even one iota ⑤ owhat they were capable?

Because, you see gentlemanthese boys are now fertilizing ⑥daffodils⑦ . But if you listen reaclose, you can hear them whispetheir legacy to you. Go on, leanin. Listen, you hear it? Carpe...heait?...Carpe, carpe diem ⑧ , seizethe day, boys, make your livesextraordinary⑨.

信不信由你,这个房间里的每个人,总有一天都要停止呼吸,僵冷,直至死亡。

我要你们向前到这儿来,细细观察过去的面孔,你们经过这儿无数次,但从未真正看过他们。他们和你们的差异并不大,对吧?同样的发型,和你们一样精力旺盛,和你们一样不可一世,世界都在他们的掌握之中,他们认为注定要成就大事,和大多数的你们一样,他们的双眼充满了希望,和你们一样。他们是否没有做出哪怕一点点可能的改变,到最后发现虚度了时光?

因为,你们看,这些男孩现在都已化为尘土了,如果你们仔细倾听,便能听见他们在低声耳语,附耳过去,

仔细听,听见了? CARPE……听见了吗? CARPE……CARPE DIEM 及时行乐,孩子们,让你们的生命超越凡俗。
