Robin Williams died on the 11th of August 2014. He was an all over extraordinary and improvisational talent and it's really sad that he died. I feel like a lot of comedians are so funny on the outside that their dark side is not far behind.Williams suffered from depression and was an alcoholic and apparently committed suicide.
But there is so much better things to remember him for than this death [click here]:
This is a tribute to a man who made me laugh as Mrs. Doubtfire
and made me think with the Dead Poet Society.
We could learn a lot from him:
Starting every day bright and early with a "Good morning, Vietnaaaam!". Life is the longest game of Jumanji you'll ever be playing. So don't take life too seriously and stay a child like Peter Pan. Carpe Diem, Carpe Dentus (seize the day and the teeth)and do something extraordinary with your life before saying goodbye to all your loved ones with "Oh Capt'n, my Captain!".
You'll have bad times, but it'll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren't paying attention to.

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.

To live would be an awfully big adventure.

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone.
