“It is a mistake to suppose that a man must be either a cynic or an idealist. Both of them have as a common basis of belief the conviction that mankind as it really is is hateful.”
George Bernard Shaw
Irish playwright, critic, and political activist George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950), was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925. He was author of more than sixty plays, including Arms and the Man (1894), Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923).
