Avanti, avvicinatevi. Ascoltate, lo sentite? Senza essere stato felice, senza aver nutrito i tuoi sogni. Non essere sopraffatto dallo scoraggiamento. Non abbandonare il tuo entusiasmo per rendere la tua vita straordinaria. Non mancare di credere che le parole e la poesia possano cambiare il mondo.

The Latin phrase carpe diem originated in the "Odes," a long series of poems composed by the Roman poet Horace in 65 B. While we speak, time is envious and is running away from us. Seize the day, trusting little in the future. Various permutations of the phrase appear in other ancient works of verse, including the expression "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die," which is derived from the Biblical book of Isaiah.
At the close of "De rosis nascentibus," a poem attributed to both Ausonius and Virgil , the phrase "collige, virgo, rosas" appears, meaning "gather, girl, the roses. Other approaches to carpe diem encourage the reader to transcend the mundane, recognize the power of each moment, however brief, and value possibility for as long as possibility exists.
But be drunk. Yet I turn, I turn, exulting somewhat, with my will intact to go wherever I need to go, and every stone on the road precious to me. We are amazed how hurt we are. We would give anything for what we have. Carpe diem remains an enduring rhetorical device in poetry because it is a sentiment that possesses an elasticity of meaning, suggesting both possibility and futility. Many poets have responded to the sentiment, engaging in poetic dialogues and arguments over its meaning and usefulness.
Robert Frost briefly considers the notion of living in the present in a poem appropriately titled " Carpe Diem. It lives less in present Than in the future always, And less in both together than in the past. The present Is too much for the senses, Too crowding, too confusing— Too present to imagine. O Life! Whitman calls the reader to the present moment, and demands something meaningful be attempted: The question, O me! That you are here—that life exists, and identity; That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.
