If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

George Bernard Shaw  (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.

Quotations from George Bernard Shaw:

 People are always blaming circumstances for what they are. I do not believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they cannot find them, they make them.

George Bernard Shaw , (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright



 Some men see things as they are and say, why. I dream things that never were and say, why not.

George Bernard Shaw , (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright



 Beware of false knowledge, its is more dangerous than ignorance.

George Bernard Shaw , (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright



 I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.

George Bernard Shaw , (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright



 If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

George Bernard Shaw , (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright



 We don't stop playing because we grow old; We grow old because we stop playing.

George Bernard Shaw , (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright



 Few people think more than two or three times a year. I've made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week.

George Bernard Shaw , (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright
