I read, I like, I share (16) : Robin Williams

Sean :  Do you have a soul mate?

Will :  Define that.

Sean :  Someone you can relate to, someone who opens things up for you.

Will :  Sure, I got plenty.

Sean:  Well, name them.

Will :  Shakespeare, Nietzsche, Frost, O’Conner…..

Sean :  Well that’s great.  They’re all dead.

Will :  Not to me, they’re not.

Sean :  You can’t have a lot of dialogue with them.

Will :  Not without a heater and some serious smelling salts.

—  Good Will Hunting ( Robin Williams & Matt Damon )

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We don’t always have an easy ride in life.   If we are lucky, we’ll find a mentor who willingly walks besides us, drums into our head the brutal reality, urges us along and picks us up when we fall.

“You’ll have bad times, but it’ll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren’t paying attention to.”

You made us laugh.  You made us think.  We are sorry that you won’t be waking up to the good stuff.  Goodbye, Mr. Williams, and thank you.
