“What’s wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor? Death is not the enemy gentlemen. If we’re going to fight a disease, let’s fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference.”

Patch Adams (1998) was about the impact each human being has on another and the responsibility of doctors to care for their patients with humanity, for compassion to be contagious. It was about service to others and the desire to create positive change.

“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.”

Dead Poets Society (1989)gave audiences one of Williams’ most memorable performances of an influential teacher named John Keating.
