Roger Ebert died

For a man who wrote about the ephemeral world of fakitude, he was decidedly profound.  This quote may be the deepest statement I have encountered. For someone I did not know, I loved this man: he was convincing in his perception of reality, he was noble in dealing with his demise. i should be so good of a person.

"Kindness' covers all of my political beliefs, no need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out."  --Roger Ebert
