Esquire shows why I have really come to admire Roger Ebert over the years. I am left wondering if I could face mortality with such calm and grace.
The title comes from this quote in the article:
There is no need to pity me, he writes on a scrap of paper one afternoon after someone parting looks at him a little sadly. Look how happy I am.
It’s not pity in my eyes, Roger. It’s admiration.
