Robin Williams (1951-2014)

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make [other] people happy, because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless…and they don’t want anybody else to feel like that.

R.I.P., Robin, knowing that you are greatly missed by so many people, and you always will be.

I am strong because I know my weakness[es]. I am compassionate because I’ve suffered. I am alive because I am a fighter. I am wise because I’ve been foolish. I can laugh because I have known sadness. I can love because I’ve known loss. I am a strong woman who has weathered the storm, but still love to dance in the rain!

Life is too short to worry about everything. If you love it, hold on. If you miss it, find it. If you’re upset, let it go. Every second you doubt yourself is a moment wasted.

…(1) You made her cry…a lot. (2) She wanted that last piece of pie. (3) It hurt. (4) She was always afraid. (5) She knows she’s not perfect. (6) She watched you as you slept. (7) She carried you a lot longer than nine months. (8) It broke her heart every time you cried. (9) She put you first. (10) She would do it all again.”

I love you, Chris and Michelle…forever and a day…xo Mom

Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.

In life, you’ll meet a lot of mean and disrespectful people. If they hurt you, tell yourself that it’s because they’ve got issues and you’re on a different level than they are. That will help keep you from reacting to their insensitivity, because there is nothing worse than bitterness and vengeance. Walk away, keep your dignity, and always be true to yourself.

I have never been remotely ashamed of having been depressed. NEVER. What’s to be ashamed of? I went through a really rough time, and I am quite proud that I got out of that.

...It may not be your money; it may be your time. It may be your listening ear. It may be your arms to encourage. It may be your smile to uplift. Who knows? Maybe just like that little baby, putting your arm around somebody and letting him or her know that you care, can help begin to heal that person’s heart. Maybe you can give a rescuing hug.

A strong person is the one who knows how to be quiet, shed a tear for a moment, and then pick up their gloves and fight again.
