The genius and marvel of George Bernard Shaw

NPG x81840; George Bernard Shaw by Elliott & FryA life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

Use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it is for. Spend all you have before you die; do not outlive yourself.

Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world.

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that’s the essence of inhumanity.

George Bernard Shaw

Today I decided to pay tribute to one of the wisest and wittiest people ever to have graced a fridge magnet. I’ve chosen 9 of my favourite quotations (because I’m in that kind of a mood). If you have any of Shaw’s words that you’d like to share, or any thoughts, please leave a comment. I love hearing from you.
