samuel-beckettIt’s the birthday of Samuel Beckett (1906-1972), author of Waiting For Godot. He wrote, ‘Where I am, I don’t know, I’ll never know, in the silence you don’t know, you must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on.’ And, ‘My mistakes are my life.’ And, ‘Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.’ He also said, ‘Nothing is funnier than unhappiness.’

That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all.’–Thomas Szasz (1920-2012) .

In 1914, ‘disgusted at the quality of the movies’ in Hollywood, Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) ‘started writing, directing, and producing his own movies….He debuted his most famous character: the “little tramp,” who’s always beaten down by life, always the butt of the jokes, but who never gives up his optimism.’
