I am not a political man and I have no political convictions. I am an individual and a believer in liberty. That is all the politics I have.

Some suggestions for you :

My lips never know my problem they just always smile.

We might as well die as to go on living like this.

Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people.

I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying.

I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician.

My only enemy is time.

When I realize how distorted even recent events have become, history as such only arouses my scepticism. Whereas a poetic interpretation achieves a general effect of the period. After all, there are more valid facts and details in works of art than there are in history books.

I will not join any club who will take me as a member.

Actors search for rejection. If they don't get it they reject themselves.

I remember when one dressed the part for the West End, and strolled with yellow gloves and a walking-stick. But that world has gone, and another takes its place, eyes see differently, emotions react to other themes. Men weep at jazz, and violence has become sexual. Time marches on.

This is a ruthless world and one must be ruthless to cope with it.

I tell them to bring him in. He comes in smiling in triumph. And he can't speak English. After his hours of waiting we cannot talk. I feel rather sorry for him and we do our best. Finally, with the aid of about everyone in the hotel he manages to ask: "Do you like France?" "Yes," I answer. He is satisfied.

Let us fight for a new world, a decent world!

I suppose that's one of the ironies of life doing the wrong thing at the right moment.
