George Bernard Shaw

"Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for the appointment by the corrupt few. "

"Hegel was right when he said that we learn from history that man can never learn anything from history. "

"If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience."

"Newspapers are unable, seemingly, to discriminate between a bicycle accident and the collapse of civilization."

"Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others because you were born in it."

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man."
