Farewell Robin Williams. We lost a great spirit.  I think this is the third suicide I've heard in the recent months.  Depression is a real illness and it needs to be treated as such.  I hope that Robin is out of pain and at rest.  He, and everyone suffering from debilitating depression, are in my prayers today.  Peace.

"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone.  It's not.  Th worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel alone" - RW

"People call these things imperfections but they're not.  Oh, that's the good stuff.  And then we get to chooses who we let into our weird little worlds.  You're not perfect sport, and let me save you the suspense: this girl you met, she's not perfect either.  But the question is whether or not you're perfect for each other." - Sean Maguire, Good Will Hunting.

"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.
