The Profound Quotes From Robin Williams That Helped Shape Our Generation


As we just reported, the iconic and lovable Robin Williams was found dead in his California home at the age of 63.

The actor was struggling with drugs and depression and was no stranger to the darker parts of life; these things all perfectly articulated through the variety of roles he undertook in his career that inspired and changed us all.

While he was made famous for his roles in "Patch Adams," "Mrs. Doubtfire," "Jack" and "Aladdin," he had a surprisingly deep, dark and profound side... as most great comedians do.

Starring in roles, such as "The Dead Poets Society," "Good Will Hunting" and "What Dreams May Come," he not only alluded to the idea that he was a master philosopher, but changed all of our former conceptions of him as just America's favorite funny man.

Because only a true philosopher can pull off both slapstick humor and profound depth.

He will be sorely missed for the light humor and deep philosophical lessons he imparted on Millennials and the rest of the world alike.

Here's a list of the most insightful and beautiful quotes from the late actor who so tragically left this earth far too young. You will be missed Robin Williams.

There's nothing wrong with being alone

Learn to forgive yourself, not just others

It's OK to be crazy

The modern man has real struggles

Pick your battles wisely

The gun debate is not a debate

Even God supports weed legalization

The hook-up culture is very real

Never stop reaching for greatness

 Surround yourself with the right people

All marriage, gay or straight, is the same

You can't appreciate the good until you've felt the bad

Women deserve to rule the world

When you think about death and the after-life

Music, like food, is necessary for survival

There's no such thing as a perfect person

Selfies are pretty narcissistic

Everyone has a purpose, every action has a meaning
