Thought for the Day

“No diet will remove all the fat from your body
because the brain is entirely fat.
Without a brain, you might look good,
but all you could do is run for public office.”

~ George Bernard Shaw
(1856-1950)

George Bernard Shaw was an Irish playwright. Although his first profitable writing was music and literary criticism, in which capacity he wrote many highly articulate pieces of journalism, his main talent was for drama, and he wrote more than 60 plays. Nearly all his writings deal sternly with prevailing social problems, but have a vein of comedy to make their stark themes more palatable. Shaw examined education, marriage, religion, government, health care and class privilege.
