Irish Wisdom

March 10, 2017

Green Shamrock Background2017 is flying by. It’s March 10, just a week until St. Patrick’s Day – a good time to look at the world from an Irish point of view. Who better than George Bernard Shaw? Look through almost any book of quotations and there are sure to be quite a few from this irrepressible Irishman.

So … a half dozen of of his more famous remarks:

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.shaw

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

And, my favorite:

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.

Happy March, my friends. If it’s St. Patrick’s Day, can spring be far behind?
