inspiring words

"I believe that if, at the end of it all, 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

Esquire magazine has an amazing story out about the famous film critic Roger Ebert and his battle with cancer and how it has affected his life. So inspiring it made me cry, not out of sorrow for him but in awe of him.
