What Lies Beneath - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) - Independent.ie

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”   —   G.B. Shaw

(Nice disguising of the author’s name!  But, this was a very quick solve for me today.  I saw “IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT” pretty much right off the bat.  And, it’s a true quote.  But, I think – with a lot of us – it’s less a matter of ability, and more a matter of not wanting to change our minds.  In a strange way, progress can be kind of subjective.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The secret of being miserable is to have leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(This is a great quote, but it sounds kind of familiar!  Maybe we had it once before?  Maybe in a slightly different form?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We learn from experience that men never learn anything from experience.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(Definitely a little tongue-in-cheek, but not all that far from the truth.  Even the smartest of us are fairly simple creatures.  Either that, or as a race we are possibly . . . insane!  We do seem to keep expecting different results, from doing the same darn things!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You’ll never have a quiet world until you knock patriotism out of the human race.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(George is/was correct.  Patriotism is just an amped up version of tribalism.  No group of people is inherently better than any other group of people.  We all love our children, and we all bleed red.  Why concern ourselves with questions of color, or creed, or sexuality, or gender identification, or nationality?  We are so much better when we work in concert with each other.  Let’s try to view the human race as a symphony orchestra.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(Sound familiar, folks?  I know I’ve lost a good number of followers over the years, by my telling them to read between the lines, and to question authority.   They considered me a cynic, or a crank, but I like how George phrased it.  I’m an accurate observer!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Life isn’t about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(I didn’t know the expression “finding yourself” was that old!  I thought it was hippie term that came about in the ’60s.  Live and learn.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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

(Which is probably why we have the two party “system” here in the United States!  Like so much of corporate America, it falls just short of a monopoly.  But, enough for a colluding cabal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The things most people want to know about are usually none of their business.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(Old George is lucky he didn’t have to deal with the tabloids and the paparazzi!  But, I think most of us want to know the hows and whys – and dirty details – of deaths and scandals.  It’s just human nature.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If you are a bore, strive to be a rascal also so that you may not discredit virtue.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(Old George had a wry sense of humor.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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

(It is a lot of responsibility!  It takes a lot of work, and also a lot of checks and balances.  Let’s all keep that in mind over the coming weeks and months.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
