French
L'homme raisonnable s'adapte au monde. Celui qui est déraisonnable s'obstine à essayer d'adapter le monde à lui-même. Tout progrès dépend donc de l'homme déraisonnable.”
George Bernard Shaw

German
Der vernünftige Mensch paßt sich der Welt an; der unvernünftige besteht auf dem Versuch, die Welt sich anzupassen. Deshalb hängt aller Fortschritt von unvernünftigen Menschen ab.”
George Bernard Shaw
