He has a way of giving everyone he comes in contact with so much inspiration. You see it in the roles he plays. Like me, he has never won an Oscar, but that means zero when it comes to how he has affected the world. His very existence represents the power of resilience. The love you have for him pales in comparison to the love I have for his spirit."
