  1. Actually, in many of these cases, Robin was speaking the words of talented writers who should get the credit for these words… I loved Robin Williams as well, credit where credit is due… eh?

  2. 🙁 Robin Williams was a great actor and a great man!
    So sad, that he decided its time for him to go. The world could need some more jokes from him 🙁

  3. He was a brilliant light shining so much warmth and laughter upon this world. Very sad that he went out so soon and in such a tragic way. I hope he has found peace.

    • I read this article once. Did you know that seven of these aren’t from a movie. As for the other three did you know that Robin was a master of improvisation who rarely stuck the script. But ultimately who cares? How about just enjoying the sentiment and remembering a great man, rather than being a whining pedant?

      • You are so right Croca. “Whining Pedant” is putting it mildly. It takes a warm, talented genius such as Robin Williams to remind us all of these wonderful quotes, jokes, adages etc. through the powerful use of his public popularity.

        Crawl back into your miserable holes pedants and nitpickers and cease attempting to sully our beautiful world with your stultifying negativity !

    • Says a lot about your character that you are unable to recognize what a good man he was. It also says a lot that you felt that you needed to post that. If you don’t like him, don’t read web pages devoted to him. Now, go curl up in the little ball where you belong.

  4. The last quote is actually very, very sad when you think about it. I loved this man so much and I miss him dearly. Thankfully he provided us all with a lifetime of material to keep us all laughing and thinking.

  5. “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change this world.”

    Agreed with that one. That’s the main reason why I started blogging. People can see the cages surrounding their lives WHEN they LEARN to see it, and they can find the opportunities around them WHEN they LEARN about them and LEARN to USE them.

  6. ““No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change this world.”
    So true, Trump’s bigoted statements and tweets have changed the word…
    For the worse.

  7. sir robin williams was the greatest actor,loved his movies.Hats off the greatest actor of the century.

  8. Some people can look this world in a unique way, that inspire others to stay happy, and change their prospective to see life.
