The text on the wall reads:

We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way…

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. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in man: cries out for universal brotherhood, for the unity of us all.

— the final speech of the great dictator by Sir Charles Chaplin

    1. Can’t say for sure but there’s a signature to the right of the yellow sub that says “Danae 2017”. (If you click on the image to its largest size you can see this.)
