The quotation of Charlie Chaplin

Here is an important quotation of Charlie Chaplin in Persian language:

لبخند بزن بدون انتظار پاسخي از دنيا، بدان روزي دنيا آنقدر شرمنده ميشود كه بجاي پاسخ لبخندت، به تمام سازهايت مي رقصد.چارلي چاپلين

I could not find the original quotation.
Can you acquire it?

I translated this quotation in English language as follows:

"Smile, without any expectation for response from the world. Be aware that someday the world will be so embarrassed that instead of answering to your smile, will dance for all of your orders."

Actually, I am not sure whether it is the quotation of Charlie Chaplin because I can not find it anywhere.

Anyways, I would like to know whose quote is. Because I enjoy it
and this quote is very important for me.

I consider below approach as my analysis:

smile = presenting of the thoughts, ideas,stories and sharing of the knowledge

There is the quotation of Immanuel Kant as follows:

“If man makes himself a worm he must not complain when he is trodden on.”

Now, let me replace glow-worm or silk-worm instead of “a worm” in above quotation.
We will have:

“If man makes himself a glow-worm he will not be trodden on during the period of the night”
“If man makes himself a silk-worm he will not be trodden on any time”

I think that above quotations are the same meanings with the first quotation (Unknown). In fact, they are two sides of a coin (extreme positive or negative).

In the meanwhile, I really enjoy from other quotations of Immanuel Kant below cited because they are completely compatible with my approach:

“Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law.”
“May you live your life as if the maxim of your actions were to become universal law”
“Act that your principle of action might safely be made a law for the whole world”
