Charlie Chaplin | Il mondo appartiene a chi osa!


Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin, noto come Charlie, è stato un attore, comico, regista, sceneggiatore, compositore e produttore cinematografico Britannico, autore di oltre novanta film e tra i più importanti e influenti cineasti del XX secolo.

Charlie Chaplin | Vivi!

Ho perdonato errori quasi imperdonabili,
ho provato a sostituire persone insostituibili

Ho agito per impulso,
sono stato deluso dalle persone
che non pensavo lo potessero fare,
ma anch’io ho deluso.
