The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Pygmalion - George Bernard Shaw - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the play Pygmalion:

The creation of a lady.

My favorite George Bernard Shaw quote from the play:

"Making life means making trouble."

Questions to ponder while reading Pygmalion:

What does it take to be a lady?

Do you own those you teach?

My thoughts about Pygmalion:

Another play I really want to see live.

It is important to overcome your limitations.

I hope Eliza made her way on her own.
