Albert Einstein & Charlie Chaplin, 1931.

The entertainer Charlie Chaplin and the scientist Albert Einstein were two of the most famous faces of the 20th century. There is a hard to prove anecdote about a meeting between them in the 1930s. While traveling together they were recognized and a crowd of people started to vigorously applaud thecelebrities. They waved to the crowd and reportedly exchanged the following words:

Einstein: What I most admire about your art, is your universality. You don’t say a word, yet the world understands you!

Chaplin: True. But your glory is even greater! The whole world admires you, even though they don’t understand a word of what you say.
