Carpe diem is a Latin phrase literally meaning "pluck the day" but usually translated as "seize the day". It is often adopted (or at least quoted) as a personal motto. The term is also used in several navies as an expression of goodwill.
One interpretation of the phrase might be as an existential cautionary term, much like "eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die" (or Memento mori).

In Film

The most famous filmic use of the phrase was in Peter Weir's 1989 film Dead Poets Society, wherein the saying was used pivotally. The first time it is used in the film is when Robin Williams' character gives a short speech to his English class:
But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? - Carpe - hear it? - Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.
