George Bernard Shaw
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty.
The more things a man is ashamed of, the more respectable he is.
When a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth.
When I was young, I observed that nine out of ten things I did were failures. So I did ten times more work.
My way of joking is to tell the truth. It is the funniest joke in the world.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
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.
Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not.
Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
When a man wants to murder a tiger, it's called sport; when the tiger wants to murder him it's called ferocity.
The longer I live the more I see that I am never wrong about anything, and that all the pains that I have so humbly taken to verify my notions have only wasted my time.
There are some experiences in life which should not be demanded twice from any man, and one of them is listening to the Brahms Requiem.
There is no sincerer love than the love of food.
The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don't have it.
Few people think more than two or three times a year. I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week.
A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected.
It is dangerous to be sincere unless you are also stupid.
First love is only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity.
