George Bernard Shaw
Hollywood keeps before its child audiences a string of glorified young heroes, everyone of whom is an unhesitating and violent Anarchist. His one answer to everything that annoys him or disparages his country or his parents or his young lady or his personal code of manly conduct is to give the offender a "sock" in the jaw.... My observation leads me to believe that it is not the virtuous people who are good at socking jaws.
George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
George Bernard Shaw

Be like the sun and meadow, which are not in the least concerned about the coming winter.

George Bernard Shaw
