Hometown Finds

I was traipsing around my hometown looking for a coffee shop when these  murals stopped me in my tracks.

Gotta love Marilyn Monroe.



... and Charlie Chaplin...

We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. ― Charlie Chaplin

I especially like the Charlie Chaplain message. His words seem very appropriate in today's world.

I agree with David about the Charlie Chaplin quote.
Both murals are well done and great finds.

Very cool murals. Whoever painted them was very talented.

Did you find a coffeeshop?

I like those murals! Do you think they were old? Wonder how many young people would know who Marilyn Monroe was or Charlie Chaplin, but I like both of the quotes features here of theirs.

Hope you had a nice Mother's Day Veronica! Happy Mother's Day to you as well!

Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe are my favorites. The murals are also nice. The messages are very meaningful, especially Charlie Chaplin.

Amy said...

She is still awesome and I love the quote.

Giorgio said...

I see in Charlie Chaplin quote an invitation to stop this chaotic and violent life.
Congrats to the painter: the two murals marvelous!

Have a nice week, Veronica!

I like the Chaplin quote. He is so right!

I'm hoping your restrictions are getting better there. Things are changing quickly here in the states. It's sort of weird being with people again.

Beautiful murals! I love the Chaplin message. The Marilyn Monroe one...not so much! :)

Lydia C. Lee said...

Where is this? Reminds me of Singapore but I don't think that's where you are? The Monroe is too negative, I'll stick with Charile.

Phil Slade said...

You found two "greats" there Veronica. Interesting quotes too. By all accounts though, Marilyn was less than perfect?

Zinaida Strinu said...

How wise and humane are Charlot's words!
I really like the idea of ​​these murals.

Happy WW, dear Veronica! ♥

I like these kind of murals! It's a clever embellishment!
And the Charlie Chaplin's quote is quite good and real. It's almost close that moment...
Happy WW, Veronica!

Great murals, I loved Marilyn Monroe. Such a talented, but troubled lady. I love watching her movies when they're on.
