Earlier today, the news broke out that legendary comedian and actor, Robin Williams, was found dead in his home at age 63. To honor the life and memory of a man who made many childhoods better than they had to be, here is a compilation of scenes and quotes from Williams' career and life, and other salutes to him.

"Our job is improving the quality of life not just delaying death.” - Patch Adams in Patch Adams

Williams certainly did improve the quality of life, through his many hilarious characters, ranging from Mork to Genie to Alan Parrish.

“You don’t know about real loss because it only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much.” - Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting

“Carpe. Hear it? (whispering) Carpe. Carpe Diem. Seize the day boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” - John Keating in Dead Poets Society

And Williams definitely made his life extraordinary.

"You know what music is? God's little reminder that there's something else besides us in this universe; harmonic connection between all living beings, every where, even the stars." - Wizard in August Rush

This one sticks with me, as I am an avid believer in the power of music, and Mr. Williams takes the words right out of my mind with that statement.

Good Will Hunting, 1997


Mrs. Doubtfire, 1993


Dead Poets Society, 1989


Good Morning Vietnam, 1987

And now, a musical tribute to honor Robin Williams' life, on the news of his death.

To some, it's grown cold, for all, it's shrunken in humor.
