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. Robin Williams (via skateeofmind)
“When Williams auditioned for the role of Mork from Ork on Happy Days (1974), producer Garry Marshall told him to sit down. Williams immediately sat on his head on the chair. Marshall hired him, saying that he was the only alien who auditioned.”
But I would dare to say that Robin Williams was not an alien. He was perhaps the purest example of creativity at work and summed up the human condition in so many ways. Those who are most inspired are often the most anxious and depressed. They are truly alive.
