The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
George Bernard Shaw, Irish dramatist & socialist (1856 - 1950)


I'm not sure I understand this quote. Do you?

I've been thinking about this quote for a few days, and no, I don't understand it either. Maybe in context it would make more sense, or maybe he was drunk when he said/wrote it (aren't all writers, especially Irish ones, drunks?). Just kidding. He lived a long time, didn't he?

I was hoping this quote would make my mundane posts about myself more important or meaningful, I guess. :)
Thanks for your thoughts, though.
