Quotes of the Legendary Charlie Chaplin









“Life is a beautiful, magnificent thing, event to a jellyfish…
The trouble is you won’t fight.
You’ve given up. But there’s something just as inevitable as death.
And that’s life. Think of the power of the universe; turning the Earth,
growing the trees. That’s the same power within you,
if you’ll only have the courage and the will to use it.”

“Nothing is permanent in this wicked world – not even our troubles.”

“That is why, no matter how desperate the predicament is, I am always very much in earnest about clutching my cane, straightening my derby hat and fixing my tie, even though I have just landed on my head.”

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