The world learned yesterday of the very sad news that Roger Ebert had passed away.
After a long battle with thyroid cancer, Roger died yesterday, surrounded by loved ones. "We were getting ready to go home today for hospice care, when he looked at us, smiled, and passed away. No struggle, no pain, just a quiet, dignified transition," his wife said.

Some of his more infamous quotes, courtesy CNN:
"Every great film should seem new every time you see it."
"No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough."
"If you have to ask what it symbolizes, it didn't."
"If a movie isn't a hit right out of the gate, they drop it. Which means that the whole mainstream Hollywood product has been skewed toward violence and vulgar teen comedy."
"I am utterly bored by celebrity interviews. Most celebrities are devoid of interest."
