I love this quote from an interview with Richard Pryor on NPR’s Fresh Aire. Mr. Pryor was talking about dealing with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), he said that his disease was a blessing and joked about it in his routines. In the interview he said:
Life to me was like… not supposed to make sense, ’cause, hey, it’s I don’t care how you slice it, you ain’t getting out alive, so enjoy as much as you can.
Richard Pryor died this month at the age of 65, his wife said he was joking right up until the and and died with a smile on his face.
Once again I’m humbled by the strength of others. A tip of the hat to you Mr. Pryor, I’m sure you watching us and still laughing.
