Lessons to Learn From Robin Williams' Performance in "The Dead Poets Society"

I always thought this movie to be amazing because of its overall message. I connected so well to this movie because it repeats the message of becoming great, nonconformity, art as a great beauty, and the importance of following your dreams. The messages of becoming great and following your dreams blur together throughout the movie. I see the blurring together in two quotes that stuck out to me. "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may ~ Carpe Diem..." and "The powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.". From these I came to the realization that we all have something that we are passionate for, something that makes us want to get up and "do". The important thing is to do what you are passionate about  "...[to] contribute a verse..." because "We are food for worms cuz believe it or not; each and everyone of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold, and die."and to not only contribute a verse but that contributing a verse does not have to be big or small but every verse is of equal greatness, as long as, the author of that verse deems it to be what he/she is most passionate about. 
In the link below, are just some other great quotes from the movie:
