"You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it." - RIP Robin Williams, July 21, 1951 - August 11, 2014
I’m honestly heartbroken over this loss. It’s odd that someone you never know can truly affect you and not really know it. I can only imagine the impact it has left on his family. But this man truly had a giant impact on the world. I remember seeing Jack in theaters, and as a young kid, not truly understanding why I was tearing up in the theaters, I know now that it was because he showed how being alienated can truly affect your being, not being able to understand why and trying to cope with that, and dealing with similar issues in life, I understand it completely, and he lived and struggled with it.
RIP Robin, Jack, Genie, Mrs. Doubtfire, Peter Pan and so many more.
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
(Dead Poets Society, 1989)
RIP Robin Williams
