Robin Williams Quotes (149+)

Actor and comedian Robin Williams was known for his fast-paced, improvisational performance style and for his performances in films like ‘Good Will Hunting’ and ‘Dead Poets Society.’

In this blog post, we are honoring the great value that the actor brought into our lives by selecting the most beautiful and inspirational Robin Williams quotes.

Actor and comedian Robin McLaurin Williams was born on July 21, 1951, in Chicago, Illinois. Eventually becoming one of America’s funniest performers, Williams attended Claremont Men’s College and College of Marin before enrolling at the Juilliard School in New York City.

Having been part of the cast of the 1977 romp Can I Do It ‘Till I Need Glasses?, Williams made his big-screen debut in a lead role playing the famous spinach-eating sailor in Popeye (1980), directed by Robert Altman and co-starring Shelley Duvall. 

A string of successful film roles for Williams followed over the years, showcasing his stellar comedic talents as well as his ability to take on serious work.

He played the title character in 1982’s The World According to Garp as well as a Russian musician who defects to America in Moscow on the Hudson (1984). Later, in Good Morning Vietnam (1987), Williams portrayed irreverent radio DJ Adrian Cronauer, while in Dead Poets Society (1989) he played free-thinking teacher John Keating.

Both projects earned him Academy Award nods for lead actor.

While his career was taking off, Williams faced many personal challenges. He developed a drug and alcohol problem while working on the sitcom Mork and Mindy, and would struggle with addiction for more than two decades. 

Williams poured his energy into his sold-out shows, but health problems would derail the comedian in March of 2009.

Several months into his fast-paced tour, Williams began experiencing shortness of breath.

The complications led him to cancel performances and he ended up undergoing heart surgery.

While Williams was recovering, the actor was once again seen playing Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.  In November 2009, he starred alongside John Travolta in the Disney film Old Dogs.

Williams has three children: Zachary (his son with Velardi), Zelda and Cody (his two children with Garces).

On August 11, 2014, the 63-year-old comedian was found dead in his California home.

His publicist released this statement: “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

In a statement issued by Susan Schneider on August 13, she disclosed that her late husband had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease which he had not revealed publicly.

Schneider’s statement also expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support following her husband’s suicide and touched on the legacy he left behind: “Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.”
