Day #982:George Bernard Shaw Quotes

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him… The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself… All progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.”

“Forget about likes and dislikes. They are of no consequence. Just do what must be done. This may not be happiness, but it is greatness.”

“There are two tragedies in life: one is not to get your heart’s desire. The other is to get it.”

“Manners are more important than laws and upon them, to a great deal, the law depends….”

“Marriage: When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions, they are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously until death do them part.”

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place”

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”
