Очередная подборка цитат.
На этот раз - от едкого и остроумного Бернарда Шоу.

Patriotism is the conviction that your country is superior to all others because you were born in it.

Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.
He who can does - he who cannot, teaches.

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.

Alcohol is a very necessary article...It makes life bearable to millions of people who could not endure their existance if they were quit sober. It enables Parliament to do things at eleven at night that no sane person would do at eleven in the morning.

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

I dread success. To have succeeded is to have finished one's business on earth, like the male spider, who is killed by the female the moment he has succeeded in his courtship. I like a state of continual becoming, with a goal in front and not behind.
