Quoting George Bernard Shaw: “The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him. The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
In our society, we more often than not equate one’s unreasonableness with stubbornness or we see that person in a negative light (maybe because he/she doesn’t agree with our stance).
Think about what Shaw is saying. With what do you equate progress?
As for me, the next time someone calls me “unreasonable,” I think I’ll thank him or her.
What do you think, world?
