--- Sometimes ---

Sometimes when you trust,
your trust is broken.
Sometimes when you love,
your heart gets crushed.
Sometimes when you're honest,
people don't like what you think.

But one day,
your life will turn out...beautifully.
You will be surrounded with people
who you can trust, love, and be honest with.
And unlike the liars, the unappreciative,
and the fakers, you'll never regret
not being your best or have to wonder
if your life could have turned out any better
if you'd just had the courage
to be trusting, honest, and yourself
the whole time.
~Doe Zantamata

"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. Make your lives extraordinary." ~Tom Shulman (Dead Poet's Society starring Robin Williams)

"In the jungle you must wait until the dice read five or eight." ~from the film JUMANJI (quote originally supplied by The Grappler and later modified by The flying doctor, Your Life's Choices on Vale Robin Williams death thread who died in his home in California, USA, dated 11 August 2014. He suffered depression.)

“Please don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky, when the stars are strung across the velvety night, and when shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day, make a wish. Think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did.”~ Robin Williams in Jack (1996)

5. “Never pick a fight with an ugly person, they've got nothing to lose."

6. “People think they know you. They expect you to be literally like you are on TV or in the movies, bouncing off the walls. A woman in an airport once said to me, 'Be zany!' People always want zany, goofy sh** from me. It takes a lot of energy to do that. If you do that all the time, you'll burnout”

7. “People ask why I do children's comedies. I'm happy being a Robert de Niro for nine-year-olds”.

8. “Comedy is acting out optimism”.

"It’s hard to take in the death of Robin Williams. With his passing, there is a bright line that must now be drawn in popular culture, one demarking before and after. He was a genuine genius, on an order of magnitude from other, only brilliant, comedians. The first remembrances of him by colleagues are that of a kind and loving man and a true professional — something else remarkable in the entertainment industry." ~Aljazeera America, CULTURE on Robin Williams

Watch a woman put on head phones, close her eyes, and have her life changed by a lyric. See a bad moment flipped upside down by a well timed joke. Words propel us, empower us, make us human and more than human. We constantly struggle to say what we mean and mean what we say. To "wrestle with words and meanings." that's what t.s. eliot calls it.

"We forget that the spoken word is like a double edge sword and it is also like a seed, and when spoken that seed is planted into the brain. Words should not be used to try to make someone feel bad or guilty. Nor should a harsh word be used to describe a color or a race. A simple word can be imprinted into the brain of a child and cause a lifetime of hurt. Using a harsh word to describe someone can cause someone to judge them unfairly.

Words should be used to build someone up not tear them down." ~Kim Bayne, Live Life Positively
