Charlie Chaplin and his quotes
Charlie Chaplin and his quotes. Sir Charles Spencer, “Charlie” Chaplin (16 April 1889 – 25 December 1977) was an outstanding English comic actor, film director and composer best-known for his work during the silent film era. He became one of the most famous film stars in the world before the end of World War I. Chaplin used mime, slapstick and other visual comedy routines, and continued well into the era of the talkies, though his films decreased in frequency from the end of the 1920s.

I am at peace with God. My conflict is with Man.
Life could be wonderful if people would leave you alone.
Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles
Despair is a narcotic. It lulls the mind into indifference.
