Goose bumps filled my body as my mom broke the news to me. The news was that one of my favorite people in the world died today. Robin Williams was the greatest man to ever walk this plant. The most beautiful soul to ever live. Rest in peace my hero. You will always be in my heart.
“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.”
- Robin Williams [July 29th 1951 - August 11th 2014]
Via The crownless again shall be king♚
Robin Williams’ passing is a reminder that those who make us laugh the most are usually fighting the biggest demons.
