Hegel was right when he said that we learn from history that men never learn anything from history.”   —  G. B. Shaw

(Well . . . at least we learned that!  Individuals seem to be able to learn from history, but we collectively seem to have a kind of amnesia, when it comes to repeating history.  And of course, when you factor in ulterior motives, the same results just don’t seem to be a major concern, now do they!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(This is about doing something that you love, and really want.  This is not about screwing up the occasional report in your cubicle, or forgetting to clean out the grease trap.  Do what you enjoy . . . even if you stink at it.  That is doing something.  All the rest is treading water.  You stay afloat, but you don’t get anywhere.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
