"We are such spendthrifts with our lives,” Paul Newman once told a reporter. "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."

In a 2005 AARP interview, Newman said that his famous, long-lasting marriage to Joanne Woodard has succeeded because of "great impatience tempered by patience. When you have been together this long, sometimes you drive each other nuts, but underneath that is some core of affection and respect."

Farewell to this blindingly beautiful man who possessed such sublime talent and uncommon integrity.
