Robin Williams, RIP

“You’re only given a spark of madness. You musn’t lose it.”
― Robin Williams

“I used to think the worst thing in life is to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.”
― Robin Williams

“You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to.”
― Robin Williams

“See what I mean? You gotta be crazy. Ain’t no time to be sane.”
― Robin Williams

“Some are born great. Some achieve greatness. Some get it as a graduation gift.”
― Robin Williams

“A nuclear bomb is a man’s way of saying, ‘I’m gonna fuck up the earth.’ A woman would never make a nuclear bomb. They would never make a weapon that kills. They’d make a weapon that makes you feel bad for a while… That’s why there should be a woman president, there would never be any wars. You know this, it’s the truth. There would never be a war; just every twenty-eight days: some severe negotiations.”
― Robin Williams

“In the dictionary under redundant it says see redundant.”
― Robin Williams

“Thank you for every kindness. Thank you for our children. For the first time I saw them. Thank you for being someone I was always proud to be with. For your guts, for your sweetness. For how you always looked, for how I always wanted to touch you. God, you were my life. I apologize for everytime I ever failed you. Especially this one… ”
― Robin Williams, What Dreams May Come

“You know what music is? God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe, a harmonic connection between all living beings, every where, even the stars.”

―Robin Williams, August Rush

I didn’t know him personally, but I grew up with him.

I watched Mork & Mindy with my mom and brother, Robin was my favorite alien as a child. He made me want to try spinach as Popeye. In Good Morning, Vietnam  he made me wonder what my own dad went through and I’ll never forget that conversation. He renewed my passion for reading in Dead Poets Society. As the bangarang Peter Pan he made me believe in magic and the importance of keeping your spirit young. He was the lovable Batty Koda that made me laugh. Who can forget the amazing and lovable Genie in Aladdin with all his crazy voices.  Mrs. Doubtfire, what can I say but I laughed so hard I cried. He brought one of my favorite childhood books to life in Jumanji. In What Dreams May Come he made me believe in love again. Bicentennial Man brought out my compassion and empathy for others. As Fender in Robots he made my son laugh. Night at the Museum gave my son an eagerness to visit history. So thank you Robin Williams for generations of laughter and love. You will most definitely be missed. RIP
