I’m sorry, if you were right,
I’d agree with you.”
– Robin Williams
Someone reminded me recently that the celebrated comedian and actor, Robin Williams would have celebrated his 70th birthday last week.
It prompted me to review some of the quotes he is famous for as well as reflect on some of the great movies he gifted the planet with. Movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Dead Poets Society, Patch Adams, Good Morning Vietnam and my personal favourite Good Will Hunting. (Maybe you’ll be inspired to watch one of these over the coming weeks…)
Robin Williams was someone who touched the lives of many with his work and life – yet struggled with his own inner battle.
Indeed it was most likely himself he was referring to, when he said:
“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind.”
It’s a very true statement and if lived by would make a very powerful difference to our world.
But as Williams’ life showed, it’s also worth remembering that we should include ourselves in that kindness.
