A Manifesto New Year

Class VIII is ringing in 2015 with a brief study of the literary form of the manifesto: essentially, any declaration by a person or group about the values, beliefs, and intentions guiding the way one lives their life.

Here are a few examples, as well as anonymous responses elicited in a museum walk opener activity.

Lyrics to “Another Day” from the Broadway musical Rent

The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn

There is no future
There is no past
I live each moment as my last

There’s only us
There’s only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss.
No other road
No other way
No day but today

There’s only yes
Only tonight
We must let go
To know what’s right
No other course
No other way
No day but today

I can’t control
My destiny
I trust my soul
My only goal
is just to be

There’s only now
There’s only here
Give in to love
Or live in fear
No other path
No other way
No day but today
