“Schopenhauer said happiness is a negative state- but I disagree. For the last twenty years I have known what happiness means. I have the good fortune to be married to a wonderful wife.  I wish I could write more about this, but it involves perfect love and perfect love is the most beautiful of all frustration because it is more than one can express. As I live with Oona, the depth and beauty of her character are a continual revelation to me. Even as she walks ahead of me along the narrow sidewalks of Vevey with simple dignity, her neat little figure straight, her dark hair smoothed back showing a few silver threads, a sudden wave of love and admiration comes over me for all that she is – and a lump comes into my throat.”

- Charles Chaplin: My Autobiography pg 477
