Experience Life – Robin Williams Motivation Tribute


Now my class, you will learn to think for
yourselves again. You will learn to savour words and language. No matter what anybody tells you, words and
ideas can change the world. We don’t read and write poetry because its
cute. We read and write poetry because we are members
of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, law, business, engineering these
are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love. These are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman: ” O me! O life! Of the questions of these recurring; of the
endless trains of the faithless. Of cities filled with the foolish; what good
amid these, O me, O life?” Answer: that you are here. That life exists, and identity; that the powerful
play goes on and you may contribute a verse.What will your verse be? You must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the
less likely you are to find it at all. Thoreau said “most men lead lives of quiet
desperation.” Don’t be resigned to that. Break out. Conformity. The difficulty in maintaining your own believes
in the face of others. For those of you, I see the look in your eyes
like “I would’ve walked differently.” Well ask yourselves why you were clapping. We all have a great need for acceptance. But you must trust that your beliefs are unique,
are your own. Even though other may think them off or unpopular. Even though the herd may go “that’s bad.” Robert Frost said “two roads diverged in a
wood and I, I took the one less travelled by. And that has made all the difference.” if I asked you about art, you’d probably give
me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo, you know a lot about him. Life’s work, political aspirations, him and
the pope, sexual orientations, the whole works, right? But I’ll bet you can’t tell me what it smells
like in the Sistine Chapel. You’ve never actually stood there and looked
up at that beautiful ceiling; seen that. If I ask you about women, you’d probably give
me a syllabus about your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can’t tell me what it feels like to
wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy. And I’d ask you about war, you’d probably
throw Shakespeare at me, right, “once more unto the breach dear friends.” But you’ve never been near one. You’ve never held your best friend’s head
in your lap, watch him gasp his last breath looking to you for help. I’d ask you about love, you’d probably quote
me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been
totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her
eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn’t know what it’s like to be
her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting
up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in
your eyes, that the terms “visiting hours” don’t apply to you. You don’t know about real loss, ’cause it
only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody
that much.

  1. A beautiful, kind and caring soul. A light that was shown into millions of lives, bringing joy and happiness to them. Truly missed, now and always RIP x

  2. One of the greatest videos I have ever seen all of his words gave me so much inspiration

  3. I grew up on Robin Williams, watched every movie he was in, the TV shows, and even his stand ups, and I remember the day in 2014 when I was 12 and seeing on the news that Robin Williams had passed away, I was devastated and cried for days and ever since then I have always listen to his quotes everyday and live by them, and I truly believe now that if everyone else did the same our world wouldn't be struggling so much

  4. i miss him so much. he was the one person i wanted to meet before i died

  5. That's my family Robin Williams is alive and well . I know we will see each other again.

  6. With the loss of people from this disease that should not exsist, we loose the most passionate and loving people in the world, the most caring, the people with most internal depth of character and feelings this is what i most hate of this world! There are great things amazing and unbelievable but everyone gets to the point of no turning back or rather thinks they have no other other option, but let me tell you ive had these thoughts the very same feeling alot of people have but you have say to yourself this isnt me this isnt what i want i want to live and be happy. Suicide is just a way to pass your depression to others and i now this well my father commit suicide 3 years ago and it messed me up but theres light at the end of the road so dont focus on start and focus on what you can experience before the end focus on what you can achieve focus on your family and most of all focus on yourself , if needs be get help dont suffer in silence there is always somebody who will listen, the best advice ive recieved is from complete strangers. And one more thing look out for the signs of friends and loved ones, i missed these signs 3 years ago and will never again. Be happy guys

  7. Robin was just playing one character over and over, and in loving each character we loved him for he gave us so much of the goodness in him

  8. Omg🤭❤ I'm crying he was such a beautiful soal we need more people like this in our world and need to learn how to savor every moment you have with them Mr. Williams had such an impact on my life and childhood. Robin if you could read this some how you are the greatest and purest person I've ever laid my eyes on we all miss you king🤧❤❤

  9. How does this not have a billion views. Robin Williams.. A true artist in every way. He is immortal.

  10. God damn… I haven't watched too many of Robin's more serious roles… I always enjoyed his more fun material… but this… just damn… I still don't believe he committed suicide…

  11. Such a great film. It opens the mind to question life in a different way. That's what I try to do with my YouTube videos. If I can help someone think in a different way with just ONE new idea or thought, then I've done my job.. just like Robin Williams has for me. Such an honour to of been alive at the same time as him.

  12. It's you who's crying, not me! I got some dust in my eyes!!! :'(

  13. Thompson, Williams, denver, dr Zeus.
    Mothers and grandfathers
    Great teachers of many. The people I miss.

  14. Yes I anxiety & depression for 27 years I keep fighting And fighting and fighting Years go by nothing is getting better I’m losing my family I lost my mom of cancer gallbladder nobody understands you. Day by day keeps on going

  15. I still miss Robin. One of the greatest actors to ever live.

  16. I love his heart but he quit. He quit. That's sad. He fucking quit. Quitting is cowardly. There is always hope. I find it funny to let him inspire me when he fucking quit.

  17. I cried the whole way through this..
    I have always loved robin because I can relate so much of his life to mine. The pain hidden by laughter, the loss hidden by a smile, suffering hidden by drugs and alcohol abuse yet an actor able to bring light to darkness and an audience to hang on every line I miss you robin so much and I will never forget you if I ever make it as an actor I will always remember you and the contribution you made to the world making a painful life just that little bit more bearable

  18. Robin Williams was just nice and funny guy but most of all he taught us that life is too short ans we should never take granted for the things we have and the things we do or going to do in this life and always ve humble you can not i will repeat you can not take take anything with you you never see a moving van behide a hersh live your life love life perfect your life just know it is a bad day rather then a year your life is a book and you cant let one bad pages or 5 pages lol ruin your life it is gonna get better do the things you wouldn't do ,meet new people, talk to new people, talk to that girlguy you always wanted to do the worst thing they can say is no or i have a boyfriendgirlfriend and thats ok about 10 years when you married ans have kids youre gonna say im glad she o he turn me down cause if it wasn't for that then i wouldn't have met you

  19. Fantastic actor and really nice man…BUT Motivation from a guy that committed suicide??????????

  20. It goes to show how powerful mental illness is. Robin, Chris Cornell, Kurt Cobain, Chester Bennington, and so so many more, had things other people dream of and strive for. Fame and fortune. The love and admiration of millions of people. Yet their own minds failed them. Probably told them things about how no one truly loves them, or actualy cares about them. People with millions of dollars, families, friends, admiration… too afraid to get the help they might need, because of the stigma of taking medicine or getting psychological help for mental illness.

  21. The world didn’t deserve you Robin. Rest In Peace old friend, I hope you have found piece, in whatever realm you reside in to this day. You were the light in a dark, and cold cold world.

  22. Man, i miss this guy so fucking much, the world just isn't the same without this Man walking it. How can someone give so much joy while being in so much pain?

  23. @The Outcome Good job on that aswell. I wouldnt say this is more uplifting then #2 though, but then its just me being biased because I miss the man so much!
    The greatest change from #1 to #2 is how u used music & unrelated scenes with the narration of RW to a greater extent & its so well fitting!

  24. Oh how I miss him and his motivational films, I miss the times as a kid learning that money isn't everything and that even with wealth there's never true happiness

  25. God I miss you robin you made my family laugh for so meany years we loved you dearly

  26. He was a good actor. He did what the script said, but in real life he was a cocaine vacuum cleaner who ended up killing himself.

  27. Words cannot explain how much I absolutely adore, admire and respect this man. Robin Williams was pure, noble, inspirational and one of few humans who acted in a way that channelled their inner humanity. He was a man of gold who just had light emitting from him everywhere. He was a soul too good to belong in a world of such badness, and clearly heaven couldn't wait for him. May he live on in our hearts and good graces, while his soul rest in peace.

  28. God Bless his heart😢Robin Williams had Lewy Body Dementia, which causes terrible visual hallucinations, Parkinson’s symptoms(trouble swallowing or walking) AND EXTREME FORGETFULNESS. It’s terrifying, stealing everything and during lucid times you’re AWARE THAT YOUR NOT RIGHT. I took care of my mother for 3 years who passed away from this at 69 years old. 2 years ago and It was devastating watching her loose her humanness. Praying for anyone who isn’t well, and their families…

  29. To much acting these days. Of what we truly are. Things that made each person amazing in atleast one way. If not many. RIP Popeye.

  30. Its crazy how a man that killed himself was talking about how great life is that just shows that no matter you think you have figured someone out they still have there own agenda. It sucks because he was one of the greats he had his own style and his own way of doing things. Robin williams will always be remembered for his work as a comedian

  31. I'm not crying, its just that someone is cutting onions…….. I ASKED FOR NO ONIONS!!!

  32. No wha matter what anybody tells you words and ideas can change the word

  33. Why did he have to leave a world that needs him more than ever.

  34. He was always an inspiration he was a superhero who wore no cape no masks didn’t have a need for a fancy butler or out of this world gadgets all he needed were his words but some people would say it is all scripted but look at when he won awards for acting he let out his true self and was accepted he inspired me to be a good person and a loyal friends and he was always correct when he said words and ideas can change the world it brought us together as a community to respect, help others and to hold on to life like it is a jewel as something you never want to lose Rest In Peace Robin Williams we hope you are happy where you are

  35. Rest in peace Robin, it's been a few years but we still miss you. You have brought me and countless others joy through your acting in movies. Thank you.

  36. Such a genuine sweet funny playful man. I really hope he was as nice in person as he seemed through our screens and his interviews. He was diagnosed with lewy body dementia, often misdiagnosed as parkinsons disease, this type of dementia gives you horrible hullusinations and can cause depression, anxiety and loss of control over movement. Not to mention the fear of the disease would cause anyone to fall into a pit of depression. Even through he's gone and for such a sad cause I still have hope he was a loved, happy and cherished man in his home life. I hope to end it before the disease took over his body and mind was what he wanted. Just so sad how it all happened. Bad things happen to good people. But he's changed so many of us for the better

  37. He should have listen to his motivation speech… he killed him self. What a jerk

  38. @ The Outcome, it's good that you're trying to promote a positive message with this video. However, the message is being delivered by the WRONG messenger!!!!! Admired Robin Williams' work, but….. In the end, he took his own life!!!! Personally cannot listen to this message coming from him…
