Charlie Chaplin... Happy World For All

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.

A tramp with toothbrush mustache, undersized bowler hat and bamboo cane who struggled to survive while keeping his dignity in a world with great social injustice.Highly descriptive facial expressions, which made world laugh ,cry and made happy for decades, who can he be none other than Sir Charlie Chaplin, on his 122nd birth day I wish the world an infinite smiles on every ones face and being in good mood and moral .Here is brief trivia , and few quotes by Charlie Chaplin.
The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" Chaplin, born 16 April in 1889 – Died on Christmas day at his siwss residency, 25 December, 1977
•    He became one of the most famous film stars in the world before the end of World War I. Chaplin used mime, slapstick & other visual comedy routines, and continued well into the era of the talkies.
•    His most famous role was that of The Tramp, which he first played in the Keystone comedy Kid Auto Races at Venice in 1914.
•     From the April 1914 one-reeler Twenty Minutes of Love onwards he was writing and directing most of his films, by 1916 he was also producing them, and from 1918 he was even composing the music .
•    With Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and D. W. Griffith, he co-founded United Artists in 1919.
•    In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Chaplin the 10th greatest male screen legend of all time.
•    In 1915, he burst onto a war-torn world bringing it the gift of comedy, laughter and relief while it was tearing itself apart through World War I. Over the next 25 years, through the Great Depression and the rise of Adolf Hitler, he stayed on the job.
•    It is doubtful any individual has ever given more entertainment, pleasure and relief to so many  human beings when they needed it the most.
•     He was born four days before Adolf Hitler, in 1889.  He had bright blue eyes.
•     In 1925, he was the first actor to appear on the cover of Time magazine.
•     At the height of his popularity, he failed to win a Charlie Chaplin look-a-like contest.
•     His imprints were removed (and subsequently lost) from the Hollywood walk of fame because of his suspected communist views.
•    Although Adolf Hitler despised Chaplin, he was aware of his popularity, and grew the Chaplin mustache to endear himself to the people.
•     He never became a U.S. citizen.
•     He composed about 500 melodies, including Smile.
•    The last film he saw, in 1976, was Rocky.
•     In 1978, his dead body was stolen for over two months. When it was recovered, it was re-buried in a vault encased in cement.
•    Charlie Chaplin had 12 Children from 4 wives.
•    He was 29 years old when he wed Mildred Harris; she was 17.
     He was 35 years old when he wed Lita Grey; Lita was 16.
     He was 47 years old when he wed Paulette Goddard; Paulette was 26.
     He was 54 years old when he wed Oona O'Neill (Oona Chaplin); Oona was 17.
Everyone smiles in the same language.

"I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying." — Charlie Chaplin

"Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles." — Charlie Chaplin
"Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself" — Charlie Chaplin

"A man's true character comes out when he's drunk." — Charlie Chaplin
"To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it." — Charlie Chaplin
"In the end, everything is a gag." — Charlie Chaplin

"That's the trouble with the world. We all despise ourselves." — Charlie Chaplin

If you don't have a smile, I'll give you one of mine.

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering
are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.
Today, I know, this is "AUTHENTICITY".

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
As I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time
was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this
person was me.
Today I call it "RESPECT".

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,
and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.
Today I call it "MATURITY".

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,
I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens
at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm.
Today I call it "SELF-CONFIDENCE".

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time,
and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do
and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in
my own rhythm.
Today I call it "SIMPLICITY".

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for
my health - food, people, things, situations, and everything the drew
me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude
a healthy egoism.
Today I know it is "LOVE OF ONESELF".

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since
I was wrong less of the time.
Today I discovered that is "MODESTY".

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry
about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING
is happening.
Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it "FULFILLMENT".

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me
and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my
mind became a valuable ally.
Today I call this connection "WISDOM OF THE HEART".

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems
with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing
new worlds are born.
Today I know THAT IS "LIFE"!

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone
and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
