Thus spake George Bernard Shaw

Monday, October 10, 2011

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

2. We have no more right to consume happiness without producing it than to consume wealth without producing it.

3. I'm only a beer teetotaler, not a champagne teetotaler. I don't like beer.

4. We don't bother much about dress and manners in England, because as a nation we don't dress well and we've no manners

5. There is only one religion, though there are a hundred versions of it.

6. [Chess] is a foolish expedient for making idle people believe they are doing something very clever, when they are only wasting their time.

7. The word morality, if we met it in the Bible, would surprise us as much as the word telephone or motor car.

8. All great truths begin as blasphemies.

9. You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race.

10. I have defined the hundred per cent American as ninety-nine per cent an idiot.

11. The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. All progress, therefore, depends upon the unreasonable man.

12. The fickleness of the women I love is only equaled by the infernal constancy of the women who love me.

13. The test of a man or woman's breeding is how they behave in a quarrel
