Was George Bernard Shaw wrong?

November 22, 2014

George Bernard Shaw has a very famous quote that is often repeated and shared, but there is something that has always bothered me about it. “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.
