QUOTATIONS, QUOTES, APHORISMS

by GEORGE BERNARD SHAW

Martyrdom is the only way a man can become famous without ability.
George Bernard Shaw

Man can climb to the highest summits, but he cannot dwell there long.
George Bernard Shaw

Why, except as a means of livelihood, a man should desire to act on the stage when he has the whole world to act in, is not clear to me.
George Bernard Shaw

I'm not a teacher: only a fellow-traveler of whom you asked the way. I pointed ahead - ahead of myself as well as you.
George Bernard Shaw

We hate those who will not take our advice, and despise them who do.
Henry Wheeler Shaw

If you value a man's regard, strive with him. As to liking, you like your newspaper - and despise it.
George Bernard Shaw

Every man over forty is a scoundrel.
George Bernard Shaw

Old men are dangerous: it doesn't matter to them what is going to happen to the world.
George Bernard Shaw

I'm only a beer teetotaler, not a champagne teetotaler.
George Bernard Shaw

Life would be tolerable but for its amusements.
George Bernard Shaw

The ordinary man is an anarchist. He wants to do as he likes. He may want his neighbor to be governed, but he himself doesn't want to be governed. He is mortally afraid of government officials and policemen.
George Bernard Shaw

Englishmen hate Liberty and Equality too much to understand them. But every Englishman loves a pedigree.
George Bernard Shaw

In Heaven an angel is nobody in particular.
George Bernard Shaw

Great art is never produced for its own sake. It is too difficult to be worth the effort.
George Bernard Shaw

Assassination is the extreme form of censorship.
George Bernard Shaw

No one can contemplate the present condition of the masses of the people without desiring something like a revolution for the better.
Sir Robert Giffen

A revolutionist is one who desires to discard the existing social order and try another.
George Bernard Shaw

No doubt it is easy to demostrate that property will destroy society unless society destroys it.
George Bernard Shaw

What is really important in Man is the part of him that we do not understand. Of much of it we are not even conscious, just as we are not normally conscious of keeping up our circulation by our heart-pump, though if we neglect it we die.
George Bernard Shaw

The politician who once had to learn how to flatter Kings has now to learn how to fascinate, amuse, coax, humbug, frighten, or otherwise strike the fancy of the electorate.
George Bernard Shaw

No community has ever yet passed beyond the initial phases in which its pugnacity and fanaticism enabled it to found a nation, and its cupidity to establish and develop a commercial civilization.
George Bernard Shaw

Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same.
George Bernard Shaw

The art of government is the organization of idolatry. The bureaucracy consists of functionaries; the aristocracy, of idols; the democracy, of idolaters.
George Bernard Shaw

Kings are not born: they are made by artificial hallucination.
George Bernard Shaw

Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.
George Bernard Shaw

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
George Bernard Shaw

A fool's brain digest philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.
George Bernard Shaw

The vilest abortionist is he who attempts to mould a child's character.
George Bernard Shaw

He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.
George Bernard Shaw

A learned man is an idler who kills time with study. Beware of his false knowledge: it is more dangerous than ignorance.
George Bernard Shaw

Every fool believes what his teachers tell him, and calls his credulity science or morality as confidently as his father called it divine revelation.
George Bernard Shaw

No man can be a pure specialist without being in the strict sense an idiot.
George Bernard Shaw

Assasination on the scaffold is the worst form of assasination, because there it is invested with the approval of society.
George Bernard Shaw

Crime is only the retail department of what, in wholesale, we call penal law.
George Bernard Shaw

When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport: when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity. The distinction between Crime and Justice is no greater.
George Bernard Shaw

Whilst we have prisons it matters little which of us occupy the cells.
George Bernard Shaw

Titles distinguish the mediocre, embarass the superior, and are disgraced by the inferior.
George Bernard Shaw

Property, said Proudhon, is theft. This is the only perfect truism that has been uttered on the subject.
George Bernard Shaw

Man is the only animal which esteems itself rich in proportion to the number and voracity of its parasites.
George Bernard Shaw

Beware of the man whose god is in the skies.
George Bernard Shaw

Obedience simulates subordination as fear of the police simulates honesty.
George Bernard Shaw

Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the virtues, is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest and commonest of the vices.
George Bernard Shaw

In an ugly and unhappy world the richest man can purchase nothing but ugliness and unhappiness.
George Bernard Shaw

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw

Those who minister to poverty and disease are accomplices in the two worst of all the crimes.
George Bernard Shaw

Civilization is a disease produced by the practice of building societies with rotten material.
George Bernard Shaw

Gambling promises the poor what Property performs for the rich: that is why the bishops dare not denounce it fundamentally.
George Bernard Shaw

Do not waste your time on Social Questions. What is the matter with the poor is Poverty: what is the matter with the rich is Uselessness.
George Bernard Shaw

If the wicked flourish and the fittest survive, Nature must be the god of rascals.
George Bernard Shaw

It is dangerous to be sincere unless you are also stupid.
George Bernard Shaw

I'm an atheist and I thank God for it.
George Bernard Shaw

I would be married, but I'd have no wife, I would be married to a single life.
Richard Crashaw

In a battle all you need to make you fight is a little hot blood and the knowledge that it's more dangerous to lose than to win.
George Bernard Shaw

Beauty is all very well at first sight; but whoever looks at it when it has been in the house three days?
George Bernard Shaw

In your Salvation shelter I saw poverty, misery, cold and hunger. You gave them bread and treacle and dreams of heaven. I give from thirty shillings a week to twelve thousand a year. They find their own dreams; but I look after the drainage.
George Bernard Shaw

Don't order any black things. Rejoice in his memory; and be radiant: leave grief to the children. Wear violet and purple. Be patient with the poor people who will snivel: they don't know; and they think they will live for ever, which makes death a division instead of a bond.
George Bernard Shaw

You are all fundamentalists with a top dressing of science. That is why you are the stupidest of conservatives and reactionists in politics and the most bigoted of obstructionists in science itself. When it comes to getting a move on you are all of the same opinion: stop it, flog it, hang it, dynamite it, stamp it out.
George Bernard Shaw

How can you dare teach a man to read until you've taught him everything else first?
George Bernard Shaw

Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books nobody reads.
George Bernard Shaw

When you've got something to prove, there's nothing greater than a challenge.
Terry Bradshaw

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
George Bernard Shaw

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw
