Once Albert Einstein said to Charlie Chaplin
You are really great!
you don't speak a word
but the whole world
understands you,
admire you,
and consider you as a legend

Chaplin smiled and said,
I am not a legend,
but you are!

You are a wonderful person,
I am nothing in front of you.
when you speak on something
even if no one understands
they worship you
admire you
and consider you as a legend...

    Hi Mary I have already commented on this poem, but I (and many others) really love it. And I have re-read it on occasion; on this occasion I just had to once again say it's a wonderful poem. The generosity of spirit you show both Chaplin and Einstein displaying I'm certain comes from YOUR SOUL and you are sharing it with the two of them! ! (Report) Reply

    Your poem amused and informed me, two positive reactions. I almost wish it had stayed with Einstein's comments to Charlie. The irony Einstein identifies - you don't say a word and everyone understands you - is delightful. I recently rewatched Charlie's City Lights which is very sentimental and heart-felt - you don't know if he will win the girl's love at the end because the film closes with a close-up of his face, and he can't speak! A silent film and the main character is at a loss for words. By the way, I read the transcript of a meeting between Einstein and the great poet Tagore. Einstein was very respectful and Tagore extremely courteous. Neither man wanted the other to change his life-focus. Einstein could not write poetry; Tagore could not calculate physics, but the encouragement each gave to the other is a model of how ALL PEOPLE should interact! Thanks again for your delightful poem! Good luck in college! I too studied literature in college - I think we're both closer in our life-focus to Tagore than to Einstein! (Report) Reply

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
