The Great Dictator - Charlie Chaplin

This quote was added by silund45
I don’t want to be an emperor... I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. 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.

So, right now the very last sentence of this paragraph cuts off and reads:

"The way of life can be free an."

but should be:

"The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way."

It's important for the last sentence to be complete and to make room for it, I suggest cutting "I'm sorry, but" at the beginning of the first sentence since the context of Hynkel's apology is lost in the quote anyway.
"That's not my business." is also unessential and I suggest replacing it with an ellipsis.
