Many and myriad are the clever epigrams that have been attributed to the famed Anglo-Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950) - and attached herein you'll find six additional old chestnuts to add to the mix.
These were compiled and transcribed by the journalist Leonard Lyons in an effort to relay to generations yet unborn that wit and conversational spark that Shaw has been remembered for all these years. These particular ones recall the bon mots he tossed out while prattling-on with various assorted gliterati of his day; yapers like Clare Boothe Luce, Orson Welles, Judith Anderson and tennis champ Helen Wills.
