Poetry and Passion


Depression is not easily understood. It’s not an easy topic for discussion. Even when a comedic genius like Robin Williams kills himself, people just shake their heads in disbelief.

Maybe the problem isn’t with the Robin Williams, maybe the problem is with you?

Listen to the whispers. Save the one you love. Just maybe you can manage to save yourself along the way. Live life for poetry and passion. Find the light. Embrace life.

Some impactful Robin Williams quotes:

“Do I perform sometimes in a manic style? Yes. Am I manic all the time? No. Do I get sad? Oh yeah. Does it hit me hard? Oh yeah.”

“I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone.”

“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy.”

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering – there are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love – these are what we stay alive for.”

“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.”

    Fame
    Your soul is your flame
    Your actions are your claim to fame,
    No shame, you’re still breathing.
    Fame’s kinship is fleeting.
    So look fame in the eye
    Sense greatness, look no further.
    To earn success you learn to falter
    And leave your fear at life’s altar.
    No pain, seize the moment.

    You may live great dreams,
    Rise above the sun,
    Travel the road of the gods.
    Or imprison yourself in lies,
    To live in the dark forest
    Of Dante’s Inferno.
    Enlightenment, alone,
    Is your salvation.
    You alone decide.
