Robin Williams,63, passed away this morning. A representative shared that he had been dealing with severe depression for a while now. He starred in movies such as Dead Poets Society, Hook, Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Patch Adams, Good Will Hunting, Bicentennial Man, and most recently in the TV series The Crazy Ones with Sarah Michelle Gellar.

We celebrate his life by remembering the wisdom he imparted through the characters he played onscreen. We hope that he is still spreading smiles and laughter wherever he is now. RIP, Robin Williams.

1. On seizing the day.

"They're not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they're destined for great things, just like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? — Carpe — hear it? — Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary. —John Keating, Dead Poets Society

"You're a complex Freudian hallucination, having something do with my mother, and I don't know why you have wings, but you have very lovely legs and you're a very nice tiny person and what am I saying, I don't know who my mother was, I'm an orphan..." —Peter Banning, Hook

3. On feelings.

"You think that mosquitos, monkeys, and lions are bad? That is just the beginning. I've seen things you've only seen in your nightmares. Things you can't even imagine. Things you can't even see. There are things that hunt you in the night. Then something screams. Then you hear them eating, and you hope to God that you're not dessert. Afraid? You don't even know what afraid is. You would not last five minutes without me." —Alan Parrish, Jumanji

10. On life and death.

"So what now, huh? What do you want from me? Yea, I could do it. We both know you wouldn't stop me. So answer me, please. Tell me what you're doing. Okay, let's look at the logic. You create man. Man suffers enormous amounts of pain. Man dies. Maybe you should have had just a few more brainstorming sessions prior to creation. You rested on the seventh day, maybe you should have spent that day on compassion.
