Charlie Chaplin quotes

The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.

We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery.

All my pictures are built around the idea of getting in trouble and so giving me the chance to be desperately serious in my attempt to appear as a normal little gentleman.

A day without laughter is a day wasted.

We think too much and feel too little.

A man's true character comes out when he's drunk.

Nothing is permanent in this wicked world - not even our troubles.

To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it!

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

Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.

Life could be wonderful if people would leave you alone.

A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.

I am at peace with God. My conflict is with Man.

Words are cheap. The biggest thing you can say is 'elephant'.

I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician.

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

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

I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.

To help a friend in need is easy, but to give him your time is not always opportune.

Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain.
