"Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot."
"Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself."
"Live without hope. Live for the moment."
"We think too much and feel too little."
"What do you want a meaning for? Life is a desire, not a meaning."
-Charlie Chaplin, various sources (actually I think they're mostly from Limelight)
