Motivational Quotes : Actors - Robin Williams

"No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world." - Robin Williams

"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And 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." - From the movie Dead Poets Society

From the Juliard School for Drama to a top stand up comic, Robin William's entertainment career has expanded to acting to the big screen of Hollywood movies. He has earned an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe Award for Good Morning Vietnam (1987), another Oscar nomination for Dead Poets Society (1989), and a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Good Will Hunting (1997). Other important films include Awakenings (1990), Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), and The Birdcage (1996). He provided the voice of the genie in Aladdin (1991), and the voice of Dr Know in Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001).
Here are clips from my two favorite Robin Williams movies: Dead Poets Society video and the scene of enlightenment in Good Will Hunting.
