A Favourite Quote – G. B. Shaw (or someone)


‘I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.’

As well as George Bernard Shaw, this delightful quotation has variously been attributed to Oscar Wilde, Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain to name a few but not to Martin Luther, John Milton or (Heaven forfend) William Shakespeare.

I first heard it in relation to responding to negative reviews but equally it could apply to any of the dubious creatures that lurk in cyberspace.
