"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 quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?" -John Keating, Dead Poets Society
Yesterday, a comic legend, Robin Williams died. It hit me pretty hard that someone who I've grown up watching, laughing, and crying, at his movies, has died at such a young age. Especially someone who brought so much joy to others, and yet couldn't find joy within himself. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends, and I am thankful for the life he had and that he brought such happiness to those he knew and did not know across the globe.
