George Bernard Shaw -- Irish dramatist, literary critic, socialist spokesman, 20th century theater figure, Nobel Laureate in Literature (1925), freethinker, defender of women's rights, and advocate of equality of income.
Shaw was always outspoken and frequently misinterpreted by the more conservative elements of society. Yet he managed to offer some keen insights on the human community and condition. Here are a few:
People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.
The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity.
We have no more right to consume happiness without producing it than to consume wealth without producing it.
What do you think? Has he captured some truth?
