November 18

PAST PAGES
On this day in 1926, George Bernard Shaw declined the money for his Nobel Prize. (He wanted to reject the award, too, but his wife convinced him to accept it.) "I can forgive Alfred Nobel for inventing dynamite, but only a fiend in human form could have invented the Nobel Prize," Shaw said.

SPOKEN WORDS
"Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world." (Voltaire, born François-Marie Arouet. 1694-1778.)
