When you loved me I gave you the whole sun and stars to play with. I gave you eternity in a single moment, strength of the mountains in one clasp of your arms, and the volume of all the seas in one impulse of your soul.
George Bernard Shaw
You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race.
The real moment of success is not the moment apparent to the crowd.
I tell you I have created this thing out of the squashed cabbage leaves of Covent Garden; and now she pretends to play the fine lady with me.
A lifetime of happiness! No man alive could bear it; it would be hell on earth.
I have my own soul. My own spark of divine fire.
