Happy Birthday, George Bernard Shaw!

GBS is one of the best people ever for quotes. Here are some favorites:

I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it. [This is all you ever needed to know about raising Becca.]

All great truths begin as blasphemies.

Which painting in the National Gallery would I save if there were a fire? The one nearest the door, of course.

Lack of money is the root of all evil.

If all the economists were laid end to end they'd never reach a conclusion.

A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.

The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous thing.

I know of only one duty, and that is to love.
