Consider What You Think!


“When you read, don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think.” — Thom Schulman, Dead Poets’ Society

This was a way for Prof. Keating (Robin Williams) to tell his students that they should study the great works from all time, and consider their value. But at the same time, value what they consider about those great works.

Every work of art, whether it comes to us through words, music, or pictures means something different to us all. And isn’t that the whole point?

We know the people that read this blog are of the considerately thinking kind. Everything that we share says something to us. What does it say to you? That, quite honestly, is the real question. So tell us…anytime!

Who knows what book, what painting, or what song might illuminate you? Maybe ‘Illumination’ by Jennifer Thomas could be a start.
