Q, you're going to go to Duke. You're going to be a very successful lawyer-or-something and get married and have babies and live your whole little life, and then you're going to die, and in the last moments, when you're chocking on your own bile in the nursing home, you'll say to yourself:'Well, I wasted my whole goddamned life, but at least I broke into SeaWorld with Margo Roth Spiegelman my senior year of high school. At least I carpe'd that one diem.
Carpe per diem - seize the check.
After signing Ryan Diem (now a starting lineman with the Indianapolis Colts), I asked him about the mail he had received, and his mom said he got one letter or more a day from Kentucky and they never came to his school and never called him. It just shows he was on their list, but they never followed up on it. It's crazy.
They just want livable wages and a realistic per diem. I had to live with my parents until the day I got a major league job. Nobody's going to want to take these jobs.
My time has been passed viciously and agreeably at thirty-one so few years, months, days, hours, or minutes remain that Carpe Diem 'is not enough. I have been obliged to crop even the seconds-for who can trust to tomorrow'
Carpe diem Rejoice while you are alive enjoy the day live life to the fullest make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.
Seize the day, put no trust in the morrow. Seize the day, trust as little as possible in tomorrow. Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero (Odes, I.xi.1)
In movies, you have a production assistant carrying your chair around and getting you coffee. In theater, no one carries your chair, no one gets you your coffee, there's no craft service, there's no per diem. The only thing that is provided for you is coffee, tea, sugar and milk. It doesn't matter how big a star you are or whatever.
Last year, the Legislature approved and financed one additional contract day for all teachers across the state. We hope they continue that and have even heard of two (additional) days. Teachers have asked for a per diem in that eventuality. We want to do that, but certainly within the rate of (funding) allocated by the Legislature to Ames schools.
Mr. Keating Carpe Diem Sieze the day.
