George Bernard Shaw

“I deal with all periods; but I never study any period but the present, which I have not yet mastered and never shall; and as a dramatist I have no clue to any historical or other personage save that part of him which is also myself…The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.”-Preface to The Sanity of Art (1907), George Bernard Shaw
