Quiz Description

2016 just plain sucked as a year. I frankly can't think of anything good that happened this year (maybe the loss of one of these guys wasn't so bad ... but it can't make up for the rest). I'm going to end the year by quietly celebrating the work of those who passed this year. I'm going to give a quote ... it might be a quote from a song they were noted for singing, a quote from a role they had in a movie, a quote from something they have written, or maybe a quote from an interview they gave. You tell me who said it or wrote it (remember, in the case of film/TV quotes, give me the actor who really died, not the character).

My conscience won't let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what?
