Rest in peace.
"I don’t know how much value I have in this universe, but I do know that I made a few people happier than they would have been without me."

Guys, I never thought I’d cry more over a guy I didn’t know personally than I cried for some one I did.
But Robin…I still just read an article about it and breakdown.
It’s so sad that a man that brought so much joy for others… couldn’t find enough for himself to see life to be bearable anymore.And it’s weird. I never met the man… but part of me feels empty when I’m reminded he’s gone.
I heard a joke once:
Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. The great clown, Pagliacci, is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.” Man burst into tears.
Says, “But doctor…. I am Pagliacci.”
Robin Williams was an inspiration to all of us, no doubt about it. He was a major part of my life and will continue to be, even after he’s gone. He showed us that life is too short to be unhappy and we need to brighten it up as much as possible. And he did just that. He brightened up many children’s and adult’s lives with his humour and incredible acting skills. And I’m no big believer in the afterlife, but I really do believe that he is in a better place, away from his demons.
So here’s to the man that inspired us, changed us and most importantly, taught us to find our inner joy. Rest in peace. Thanks for the laughs.
Robin Williams: 1951 — 2014
"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 a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did." — Robin Williams.

Couldn’t sleep but finally managed to draw something.
Almost fell off my chair laughing at most of the quotes in his IMDB-page. Not many were mood-appropriate, and somehow that made me happy.
Aladdin was on Disney Channel this morning and at the end of the movie they showed this touching scene. I cried my eyes out.
