looking at everything as if for the first or last time

“I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way… Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it in another way.

~Robin Williams as teacher John Keating, 
addressing a group of students 
from atop of a desk, 
from the movie Dead Poet’s Society

“Look at everything as though you are seeing it either for the first or last time, then your time on earth will be filled with glory.”
~Betty Smith, from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
