Calvero (Charlie Chaplin) – Limelight (1952)
“We think too much and feel too little.”
“Imagination means nothing without doing.”
“What do you want meaning for?
Life is desire, not meaning!”
“That’s all any of us are: amateurs.
We don’t live long enough to be anything else.”
“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.”
“Nothing is permanent in this wicked world – not even our troubles.”
“You have to believe in yourself, that’s the secret.
Even when I was in the orphanage, when I was roaming the street trying to find enough to eat,
even then I thought of myself as the greatest actor in the world.”
