His immortal words: “I’m pretty sure, I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That’s not a loss. That’s a draw.”

"Turned wrong way round, the relentless unforeseen was what we schoolchildren studied as 'History,' harmless history, where everything unexpected in its own time is chronicled on the page as inevitable. The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”

 

-Philip Roth, The Plot Against America

Never really found him all that funny, but is shame to die that young.

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

His Burt Reynolds sure was funny, on the other hand, Celebrity Jeaopardy is about the only thing I also found Will Ferrell to be exceedingly funny in, so take that with a grain of salt. 

No mind to think. No will to break. No voice to cry suffering.

More "likeable" than funny but RIP nonetheless.

Really ruined his legacy with the presentation at the UN.  Although I guess his involvement in covering up My Lai had it tarnished enough.
