  • Charlie Chaplin
    My 10 Life Lessons
  • Everybody knows Chaplin’s iconic Tramp –
    the little fellow with the bowler hat and the oversized shoes. In masterpieces as Modern Times, City Lights, The Great Dictator Charlie appears as an extraordinary performer and a complex artist, a maker of films that were and still are poignant, funny and deeply relevant.
  • Charlie Chaplin, considered to be one of the most pivotal stars of the early days of Hollywood
    He lived an interesting life both in his films and behind the camera. He is most recognized as an
    icon of the silent film era, often associated with his popular "Little Tramp" character; the man with
    the toothbrush mustache, bowler hat, bamboo cane, and a funny walk.
  • Charlie Chaplin was the son of music hall performers
    Charles Spencer Chaplin was born in Walworth, London, England on April 26th, 1889 to Charles
    and Hannah (Hill) Chaplin, both music hall performers, who were married on June 22nd, 1885.
    After Charles Sr. separated from Hannah to perform in New York City.
  • Chaplin began built Chaplin Studios
    While at Keystone, Chaplin appeared in and directed 35 films, starring as the Little Tramp in nearly all. In November 1914 he left Keystone and signed on at Essanay, where he made 15 films. In 1916, he signed on at Mutual and made 12 films. In June 1917 Chaplin signed up with First National Studios, after which he built Chaplin Studios. In 1919 he and Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and D.W. Griffith formed United Artists (UA).
  • Chaplin was married four times and had a total of 11 children.
    In contrast to many of his boisterous characters, Chaplin was a quiet man who kept to himself a lot. He also had an "un-millionaire" way of living. Even after he had accumulated millions, he continued to live in shabby accommodations.
  • In 1921 Chaplin was decorated by the French government for his outstanding work as a filmmaker, and was elevated to the rank of Officer of the Legion of Honor in 1952. In 1972 he was honored with an Academy Award for his "incalculable effect in making motion pictures the art form of the century."
    In 1975 England's Queen Elizabeth II knighted him. Chaplin died of natural causes on December 25, 1977 at his home in Switzerland. Here are 10 Life Lessons from Charlie Chaplin :
  • Lesson 1 : “AUTHENTICITY”
    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.”
  • Lesson 2 : “RESPECT”
    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.”
  • Lesson 3 : “Maturity”
    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.”
  • Lesson 4 : “SELF-CONFIDENCE”
    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.”
  • Lesson 5 : “SIMPLICITY”
    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.”
  • Lesson 6 : “LOVE OF ONESELF”
    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,”
  • Lesson 7 : “MODESTY”
    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.”
  • Lesson 8 : “FULFILLMENT”
    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,”
  • Lesson 9 : “WISDOM OF THE HEART”
    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.”
  • Lesson 10 : “LIFE”
    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”!
  • “Life can be wonderful
    if you're not afraid of it.
    All it takes is courage,
    imagination ... and
    a little dough.”
  • “You'll never find a rainbow
    if you're looking down”
  • “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
