    1. Wow! I am now a fan. I knew he was a silent screen icon, but this poem, and quote after quote, Chapman is so uplifting, optimistic, and for his time, motivational as all get out. He used his celebrity well. ***

    1. I forgot to add this to my last note, but I think you will find it interesting.
      The poem “As I began to love myself” is often accompanied by the statement that Charlie recited it on his 70th birthday, but this is completely false. It was actually written by Kim McMillen.**
      Let me know what you think.

      1. I’m not sure what to think. Is it my understanding then that Charlie is not the true author???

        If so, this wouldn’t be the first time credit was put where it might not [entirely] belong. Dang it!


    1. I have just looked this up. It appears there is some controversy over who wrote what text, what version; which has been translated from this or that language by those [fans] who credit Charlie here, and Kim McMillen there.

      From what I have reasoned, the original [longer version/different wording] may well have been authored by McMillen. The version I’m showing in it’s current rendition was not.


      1. I appreciate you bringing “rightful authorship” to my attention so I could do some additional research. Whoever wrote these words [poem, quote, speech, passage, etc.] did a glorious job. Applause applause applause!
