George Bernard Shaw Quotation Day

  • Independence? That's middle class blasphemy. We are all dependent on one another, every soul of us on earth.
  • A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.

  • Democracy is a form of government that substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.
