Charlie Chaplin Quotes  >>>

Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.

We think too much and feel too little.

A day without laughter is a day wasted. >>>

Man as an individual is a genius. But men in the mass form the headless monster, a great, brutish idiot that goes where prodded.

What do you want a meaning for? Life is a desire, not a meaning.

I don't believe that the public knows what it wants; this is the conclusion that I have drawn from my career.
