The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational
mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society
that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
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.
Professor Keating (Robin Williams) in Dead Poet’s Society
