"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."

- Charlie Chaplin

You may have seen this incredibly powerful, enlivening and moving speech from Charlie Chaplin in his film, 'The Great Dictator'. I wanted to share this deeply inspiring clip because everything he mentions about how we ought to treat one another is even more relevant in the world you and I live in today - 75 years on from when this was made!

While there are so many inspirational speeches in movies, this speech comes directly from Chaplin's heart. He cared deeply about humanity, progress and freedom in a time so struck with war and turmoil.  I hope you appreciate this clip too. Feel free to share what it meant for you in the comments below...
