Thought for the Day

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world;
the unreasonable one persists in trying
to adapt the world to himself.”

~ George Bernard Shaw

*George Bernard Shaw

Born: 26 July 1856(1856-07-26) Dublin, Ireland
Died: 2 November 1950 (aged 94) Hertfordshire, England

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.
