Never really watched Siskel & Ebert or Ebert at the Movies, but I loved reading his reviews. The man was one hell of a writer and it seems, overall, a pretty good dude.
Rest in peace, good sir.
“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.”
