“I like to walk in the rain because even if I cry, no one will see my tears”. I like this quote for many reasons, especially being from the great comedian Charlie Chaplain.
Today is Chaplin’s 125th birthday. “Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin KBE was an English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame in the silent film era. He became a worldwide icon through his screen persona, the Tramp, and is considered one of the film industry’s most important figures”. Wikipedia
Once, Charlie Chaplin told a joke to an audience, and people started laughing.
Chaplin repeated the same joke; this time, only a few people laughed.
Again Chaplin told the same joke.
But this time, no one laughed.
Then the chaplain spoke these beautiful words.
If you can’t laugh over and over hearing the same thing, why cry over an old sadness repeatedly? So enjoy every moment of your life. Life is beautiful.
According to Charlie Chaplain, Nothing in this world is permanent, even our mistakes. Hence we don’t have to lament our silly mistakes.
He advised us with a simple philosophical thought that the most wasted day in life is the day we don’t laugh. So we need to practice laughing every day.
Once, a bird asked a bee.
“How difficult are you to make honey?
Don’t you feel bad when people take it away?”
Bee said, “No…because they can take honey, but they can’t take away my ability to make honey.” That was narrated by Charlie Chaplain, the best proof of his meticulous ability to induce philosophy through his light comic acts.
Long live Chaplain, you still lives in our memories, and motivate us to laugh!
