Quote of the Day (Bernard Shaw, on True Adoration of a Woman)

“I hope you have lost your good looks; for while they last any fool can adore you, and the adoration of fools is bad for the soul. No: give me a ruined complexion and a lost figure and sixteen chins on a farmyard of Crow's feet and an obvious wig. Then you shall see me come out strong."—Playwright George Bernard Shaw, letter to Mrs. Patrick Campbell, in Bernard Shaw and Mrs. Patrick Campbell: Their Correspondence, edited by Alan Dent (1952)
