Farewell to a man of different faces, a true and noble one - RIP Robin Williams

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams, who dazzled in such wide-ranging dramatic and comedic roles during a four-decades long career, is dead at 63.

He was outstanding in every role he played.

A representative for Williams said in a statement the actor had been battling "severe depression of late."

"This is a tragic and sudden loss," Mara Buxbaum said. "The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Williams' wife Susan Schneider said in a statement she is devastated and asked for privacy.

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings," she said. "I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

What's my fave Robin's movie? Thinking of what I liked most? So many. . . Robin starred in many of my favorite films ... Mrs Doubtfire, Hook, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Flubber, Patch Adams, Popeye, What Dreams May Come, Good Morning Vietnam, Jumanji, Hook, Jack, The Final Cut, Peter Pan, Bicentenial Man, Insomia, Man of the Year ... the list goes on.

Here's one from Dead Poets Society movie: 

Keating: "Seize the day. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may." Why does the writer use these lines?

Charlie: Because he's in a hurry.

Keating: No. Ding! Thank you for playing anyway. Because we are food for worms, lads. Because, believe it or not, each and every one of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold and die.

Reading his lines, jokes or one-liner quotes in his interviews, stand-up shows... I read . . . There are many of them..I found some funny, serious, political, regarding sex, drugs, alcoholism..... 

Here are some best lines I like. Thanks Robin Williams, I will remember these quotes from you.

"Here"I'd like to start the show by showing you something I'm very proud of. You'll have to step back, though."

"What's right is what's left if you do everything else wrong."

"Some are born great. Some achieve greatness. Some get it as a graduation gift."

"Sometimes you've got to specifically go out of your way to get into trouble. It's called fun."

"I'm a very tolerant man, except when it comes to holding a grudge."

"Death – to blink for an exceptionally long period of time."

"Death is nature's way of saying, "Your table's ready."

An acting legend gone too soon, a man of different faces,  a true and noble one. 

Thank you Robin Williams for hours of laughs and memorable characters. We will miss you! Rest in peace. God is with you always.
