THE REASONABLE MAN


The reasonable man adapts himself to the world;
the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

George Bernard Shaw 1856-1950

Friend Shaw must have generated a lot of discomfort amongst his neighbors. How very delightful! I thank you for your thoughtful sharing of this.

Lovingly ...

An old friend I visited in Tasmania last week said that she grew up with this quote on the wall in her Mother's kitchen and yes, some would have considered this a nonsense back then.
