paul newman really is the best.

I know he died a while ago, but I was just reading a People magazine commemorative issue about Paul Newman, and I was reminded of how freaking awesome he was. I’m certainly thankful for him on this Thanksgiving weekend. Kathleen already posted a bunch of wonderful photos of him a right after his death, but let’s look at a few more: 

Paul and Joanne were simply perfect:

And this quote is what prompted me to write this post:

We are such spendthrifts with our lives. The trick of living is to slip on and off the planet with the least fuss you can muster. I’m not running for sainthood. I just happen to think that in life we need to be a little like the farmer, who puts back into the soil what he takes out.

We love you here at SWTCTW, Paul.

    Paul Newman was great at everything, that’s what Elizabeth Taylor said on him: “He was purity of heart. Working with him was such a joy. Knowing him, being his friend, was as golden as the sunset and a privilege I’ll never forget.”

    Here I’ve tried to collect all notable tributes paid to Paul Newman by his famous peers:
