"So you want to be “Legendary”
I rarely watch television advertisements. I surf other programs, read and sometimes work on my computer when commercials are on. However, I was captured by Stella – Stella Artois. I was intrigued by the conclusion of a Stella Artois advertisement where the actor stated, “Be Legend”. The ad reminded me of The Alchemist
by Paulo Coelho where the traveler, Santiago, is encouraged to fulfill his personal legend, to follow his dreams.
Related, is the movie, The Dead Poet’s Society. The late Robin Williams, as Mr. Keating is orienting his students to his course on literature and has the students listen to a few lines (below) from the poem, To The Virgins, To Make Much of Time
(Robert Herrick, 1591-1674) and he asks the students what the author is trying to say.
“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying”.
