Goodreads | Dr. Seuss quotes
“I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one. . . . Humans are caught—in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil. . . . There is no other story. A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?” ― John Steinbeck

George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright and a co-founder of the London School of Economics. He is the only person to have been awarded both a Nobel Prize in Literature (1925) and an Oscar (1938), for his contributions to literature and for his work on the film Pygmalion
Pygmalion Synopsis Pygmalion (1912) is a comedy play by Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw. Professor of phonetics Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility, the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech.
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 (Irish essayist novelist playwright) He is mainly noted for his dramas. He is the only person to win a Nobel Peace Prize for writing and drama. Some of his noted writings are Pygmalion Saint Joan, Back To Methuselah, Fanny's First Play, The Chocolate Soldier. . . . .

My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. I can dispense then with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.
