PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
George Bernard Shaw
QUOTATION: We want a few mad people now. See where the sane ones have
QUOTATION: The degree of tolerance attainable at any moment depends on
the strain under which society is maintaining its cohesion.
QUOTATION: Joan: I hear voices telling me what to do. They come from
God. Robert: They come from your imagination. Joan: Of course. That is
how the messages of God come to us.
QUOTATION: It is difficult, if not impossible, for most people to think
otherwise than in the fashion of their own period.
QUOTATION: The law of God is a law of change, and ... when the Churches
set themselves against change as such, they are setting themselves against
the law of God.
QUOTATION: The heretic is always better dead. And mortal eyes cannot
distinguish the saint from the heretic.
QUOTATION: There is nothing on earth more exquisite than a bonny book,
with well-placed columns of rich black writing in beautiful borders, and
illuminated pictures cunningly inset. But nowadays, instead of looking
at books, people read them. A book might as well be one of those orders
for bacon and bran.
QUOTATION: The Jews generally give value. They make you pay; but they
deliver the goods. In my experience the men who want something for nothing
are invariably Christians.
QUOTATION: A miracle, my friend, is an event which creates faith. That
is the purpose and nature of miracles. They may seem very wonderful to
the people who witness them, and very simple to those who perform them.
That does not matter: if they confirm or create faith they are true miracles.
