He can be quoted as saying…
I’ve turned down a lot of offers to do documentaries before. But I don’t have long to live,
Whether I keel over as I’m speaking to you or 10 years from now, my time is limited, so that’s very much a factor. I’ve got grandchildren. This documentary is a way of reaching out after I die.
I’m trying to discover something I’ve never said before or to find a way to say something I’ve said before in a different way so I can explore that truth further.
The sad thing is that the older a person gets the wiser they become and then they die with all that knowledgeShatner in interview with Variety
Shatner most recently made headlines by traveling into space as part of a new commercial space travel program. Jeff Bezos and others have also taken the voyage. See a video of that journey below….
Is Shatner not telling us something about his health? He seems to be devoid of hope. It is very sad to hear him say that he does not have much time left.
Shatner can also be quoted as saying…
People ask about a legacy. There’s no legacy. Statues are torn down. Graveyards are ransacked. Headstones are knocked over. No one remembers anyone. Who remembers Danny Kaye or Cary Grant? They were great stars. But they’re gone and no one cares. But what does live on, are good deeds. If you do a good deed, it reverberates to the end of time. It’s the butterfly effect thingShatner
Let us hope that this legendary actor is around for a long time to come.
