George Bernard Shaw Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950) was an Irish playwright and a co-founder of the London School of Economics. Although his first profitable writing was music and literary criticism, in which capacity he wrote many highly articulate pieces of journalism, his main talent was for drama, and he wrote more than 60 plays. He was also an essayist, novelist and short story writer. Nearly all his writings address prevailing social problems, but have a vein of comedy which makes their stark themes more palatable. Issues which engaged Shaw's attention included education, marriage, religion, government, health care, and class privilege.He was most angered by what he perceived as the exploitation of the working class. An ardent socialist, Shaw wrote many brochures and speeches for the Fabian Society. He became an accomplished orator in the furtherance of its causes, which included gaining equal rights for men and women, alleviating abuses of the working class, rescinding private ownership of productive land, and promoting healthy lifestyles. For a short time he was active in local politics, serving on the London County Council.Shaw was noted for expressing his views in uncompromising language, whether on vegetarianism (branding his own pre-vegetarian self a "cannibal"), the development of the human race (his own brand of eugenics was driven by encouragement of miscegenation and marrying across class lines), or on political questions (in spite of his own generally liberal views he was not an uncritical supporter of democracy, and is even recorded as supporting, or at least condoning, the dictators of the nineteen thirties).In 1898, Shaw married Charlotte Payne-Townshend, a fellow Fabian, whom he survived. They settled in Ayot St Lawrence in a house now called Shaw's Corner. Shaw died there, aged 94, from chronic problems exacerbated by injuries he incurred by falling from a ladder.He is the only person to have been awarded both a Nobel Prize in Literature (1925) and an Oscar (1938), for his contributions to literature and for his work on the film Pygmalion (adaptation of his play of the same name), respectively. Shaw turned down all other awards and honours, including the offer of a knighthood.

#Quote
1An actor who drinks is in a bad way, but an actor who eats is lost!
2When we wish to learn of the deeds done for love, we turn to the murder columns.
3Communism, being the lay form of Catholicism, and indeed meaning the same thing, has never had any lack of chaplains.
4Do not do unto others as you expect they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same.
5The fact that a believer is happier than a non-believer is no more to the point than the fact that a drunkard is happier than someone who's sober.
6A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
7How can what an Englishman thinks be heresy? It is a contradiction in terms!
8[on composer Johannesburg Brahms] Tiresomely addicted to dressing himself up as Handel...Too fundamentally addleheaded to make anything great out of the delicious musical luxuries he wallowed in.
9The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
10Whether Socrates got as much happiness out of life as Wesley is an unanswerable question. But a nation of Socrateses would be much safer and happier than a nation of Wesleys, and its individuals would be higher in the evolutionary scale. At all events it is in the Socratic man and not in the Wesleyan that our hope lies now.
11My stories are the old stories; my characters are the familiar Harlequin and Colombine, clown and Pantaloon; my stage tricks and suspense and thrills and jests are the ones in vogue when I was a boy, by which time my grandfather was tired of them.
12There are three things I'll never forget about America: the Rocky Mountains, Niagara Falls and 'Amos and Andy'.
13Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.
14Success covers a multitude of blunders.
15It is sometimes necessary to make people laugh to prevent them from hanging you.
16Better see rightly on a pound a week than squint on a million.
17Gossipers turn an earful into a mouthful.
18[on why one shouldn't wrestle with pigs] You get dirty and, besides, the pig likes it.
19[on dreams] Some men see things as they are and say, 'Why?' I dream things that never were and say, 'Why Not?'
20[on being asked if that was he seen riding double with T.E. Lawrence] Good heavens, man, I've got a perfectly good motorcycle of my own. Lawrence's machine is such a great brute of a thing, and he goes so fast I doubt whether I could hold on. Probably, I'd be left sitting on the road.
21[on being awarded an Oscar for 'Pygmalion' in 1938] It's an insult for them to offer me any honor, as if they had never heard of me before - and it's very likely they never have. They might as well send some honor to George for being King of England.
22Not the least regard will be paid to American ideas except to avoid them as much as possible.
23[To Samuel Goldwyn] The trouble with you, Mr. Goldwyn, is that you're only interested in art, and I am only interested in money.
24Sister, you're trying to keep me alive as an old curiosity, but I'm done, I'm finished, I'm going to die. (his last words)
25The average age (longevity) of a meat eater is 63. I am on the verge of 85 and still work as hard as ever. I have lived quite long enough and am trying to die; but I simply cannot do it. A single beef-steak would finish me; but I cannot bring myself to swallow it. I am oppressed with a dread of living forever. That is the only disadvantage of vegetarianism.
26Life isn't about finding yourself; it's about creating yourself.
27When a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth.
28There is only one true happiness in life, to love and be loved.
29"and there is, on the whole, nothing on earth intended for innocent people so horrible as a school. To begin with, it is a prison. But it is in some respects more cruel than a prison. In a prison, for instance, you are not forced to read books written by the warders (who of course would not be warders and governors if they could write readable books), and beaten or otherwise tormented if you cannot remember their utterly unmemorable contents. In the prison you are not forced to sit listening to the turnkeys discoursing without charm or interest on subjects that they don't understand and don't care about, and are therefore incapable of making you understand or care about. In a prison they may torture your body; but they do not torture your brains; and they protect you against violence and outrage from your fellow-prisoners. In a school you have none of these advantages. With the world's bookshelves loaded with fascinating and inspired books, the very manna sent down from Heaven to feed your souls, you are forced to read a hideous imposture called a school book, written by a man who cannot write: A book from which no human can learn anything: a book which, though you may decipher it, you cannot in any fruitful sense read, though the enforced attempt will make you loathe the sight of a book all the rest of your life.""A Treatise on Parents and Children," preface to Misalliance (1909).
30Sister, you're trying to keep me alive as an old curiosity, but I'm done, I'm finished, I'm going to die.
31You have a choice between the natural stability of gold and the honesty and intelligence of the members of government. And with all due respect for those gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the capitalist system lasts, vote for gold.
32There are scores of human insects who are ready at a moment's notice to reveal the will of God on every possible subject.
33A perpetual holiday is a good working definition of Hell.
34The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don't have it.
35If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance.
36When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty.
37We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
38He treats a flower girl as if she was a duchess, and a duchess as if she was a flower girl.
39The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity.
40If you eliminate smoking and gambling, you will be amazed to find that almost all an Englishman's pleasures can be, and mostly are, shared by his dog.
41The more things a man is ashamed of, the more respectable he is.
42Don't waste time collecting other people's autographs; rather devote it to making your own autograph worth collecting.
43Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire.
44Beauty is all very well at first sight, but who ever looks at it when it has been in the house three days?
45As long as I have a want, I have a reason for living. Satisfaction is death.
46Silence is the most perfect expression of scorn.
47The things most people want to know about are usually none of their business.
48Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody can read.
49The theory of legal procedure is that if you set two liars to expose one another, the truth will emerge.
50Assassination is the extreme form of censorship.
51Liberty means responsibility. That's why most men dread it.
52Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.
53It's a woman's business to get married as soon as possible, and a man's to keep unmarried as long as he can
54Hell is full of musical amateurs: music is the brandy of the damned.
55Marriage is popular because it combines the maximum of temptation with the maximum of opportunity.
56Do not unto others as you would they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same.
57An Englishman thinks he is moral when he is only uncomfortable.
58I am a gentleman: I live by robbing the poor.
59A lifetime of happiness! No man alive could bear it: it would be hell on earth.
60There is no love sincerer than the love of food.
61There are two tragedies in life. One is not to get your heart's desire. The other is to get it.
62Nothing is ever done in this world until men are prepared to kill one another if it is not done.
63I'm only a beer teetotaller, not a champagne teetotaller.
64The golden rule is that there are no golden rules.
65He who can, does. He who cannot teaches.
#Fact
1"Major Barbara" at the Mark Taper Forum Theatre was awarded the 1971 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Distinguished Production.
2It is a common joke among fans of the Board Game "Trivial Pursuit" that "When in doubt, the answer is George Bernard Shaw!".
3His play, "Heartbreak House" at the Writers' Theatre in Chicago, Illinois was nominated for the 2011 Equity Joseph Jefferson Award for Production of a Play (Large).
4A longtime friend of Harpo Marx.
5His will left a small fortune to be used to develop a precise English alphabet of 40 letters to replace the current one. Someone created it, but it never caught on.
6Shaw and his wife were vacationing at an English seaside resort when someone told them that Harpo Marx was nude-sunbathing, down on the beach. Shaw and his wife immediately went to the beach and surprised Marx in the act. This began their long friendship.
7Was a vegetarian.
8He used the pseudonyms "GBS" and "Corno di Bassetto" as a columnist.
9Biography/bibliography in: "Contemporary Authors". Volume 105, pg. 371-378. Detroit, MI: Gale Research, Inc., 1990.
10Supporter of Salvation Army ideas.
11When his house at Ayot St Lawrence became a museum his Oscar statuette was so tarnished the curator, believing it had no value, used it as a door stop.
12Unlike other prominent authors, GBS refused to sell the screen rights to his plays, but would only license them for renewable five-year periods - thus his first major film, the successful Arms and the Man (1932) (for which he also wrote the screenplay, as he did the later Pascal productions - winning an Best Screenplay Oscar in 1938 for his adaptation of "Pygmalion") is today a "lost" film because its license was not renewed due to Shaw's feeling that by 1937 advances in sound technology made the 1932 sound too archaic.With that exception, until 1938, film versions of his plays were either unauthorized by him or had not met with his approval. He supervised, wrote the screenplays for, and had creative control over three film versions of his plays-- the Pygmalion (1938), the Major Barbara (1941), and the Caesar and Cleopatra (1945). He agreed to cut some of the dialogue for the "Pygmalion", and it turned out to be the most cinematic of the three films that he was involved with, but he added entire scenes to "Major Barbara" while becoming more sensitive to the idea of having to cut his dialogue, and "Caesar and Cleopatra" was filmed intact, with only minor additions. "Caesar and Cleopatra" was the first authorized film of a Shaw play to receive some harsh criticism, but it has become a classic since its original release. Shaw also prepared a screenplay for his play, "Saint Joan", unproduced in his lifetime, but closely adapted by Graham Greene for the 1957 Otto Preminger production half a decade after Shaw's death.Unfortunately, Shaw's system of five-year licenses, while not benefiting less high profile playwrights (and fortunately only resulting in one major lost Shaw film), inspired later copyright attorneys who used it as a template to license film clips to documentary and other film makers, making the reissue of older documentaries and films a nightmare of rights clearance issues.
13Is the great uncle of author, actor and filmmaker Scott Shaw.
14Appears on sleeve of The Beatles' "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club".
15Only person to receive a Nobel Prize and an Oscar (Pygmalion (1938)).
16Nobel Prize for Literature 1925.
17Born at 12:30am-LMT.
18Died from injuries received after falling from a ladder while he was trimming a tree on his estate.
