Wise Words

Posted in personal by echan on September 15, 2011

LYL alerted me to this excerpt from Roger Ebert’s soon to be published memoirs, but I was particularly struck by these words:

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.
