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 full-filled its purpose.” ~ Charlie Chaplin

Charlie’s Sunday Quote

Charlie Chaplin 1

Good day to all! Another Sunday and another quote from the maestro himself. To me Charlie Chaplin could be a very emotional person, or that’s what I gather from his films and other footage. His quotes allow us a window into his persona, and as this week’s quotation testifies to it wasn’t all about laughter. Today’s video clip is a wonderful piece of music that was written by Charlie, and although I normally listen to Nat King Cole singing Smile, I also like Michael Jackson’s version too, so sit back and enjoy. The footage in the video is memorable too.
