Quotes of the Day: Pygmalion

I know I reviewed the Pygmalion manga this week, but being so short and so violent, there weren’t many memorable quotes from it.

Instead of sharing you those quotes, I gave you some of the quotes from a famous play of the same name by George Bernard Shaw.

Hope you enjoy.

“If you can’t appreciate what you’ve got, you’d better get what you can appreciate.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“Happy is the man who can make a living by his hobby”
― George Bernard Shaw

“I sold flowers. I didn’t sell myself. Now you’ve made a lady of me I’m not fit to sell anything else.”

“What is life but a series of inspired follies? The difficulty is to find them to do. Never lose a chance: it doesn’t come every day.”

“It exasperated her to think that the dungeon in which she had languished for so many unhappy years had been unlocked all the time, and that the impulses she had so carefully struggled with and stifled for the sake of keeping well with society, were precisely those by which alone she could have come into any sort of sincere human contact.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“The weak may not be admired and hero-worshipped; but they are by no means disliked or shunned; and they never seem to have the least difficulty in marrying people who are too good for them. They may fail in emergencies; but life is not one long emergency: it is mostly a string of situations for which no exceptional strength is needed, and with which even rather weak people can cope if they have a stronger partner to help them out.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“We are all savages”
― George Bernard Shaw

“Remember that you are a human being with a soul and the divine gift of articulate speech: that your native language is the language of Shakespear and Milton and The Bible; and don’t sit there crooning like a bilious pigeon.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“German and Spanish are accessible to foreigners: English is not accessible even to Englishmen.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“Besides, do any of us understand what we are doing? If we did, would we ever do it?”
― George Bernard Shaw
