Life is Too Short! - George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), Irish playwright, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925,  twenty years before that decided that he and his wife settle in a small village Ayot St. Lawrence in Hertfordshire. He later explained why he decided to do that:

-We visited the local cemetery and saw a nice tombstone on which was written: "Mary Ann South. Born 1805. Died 1895. Her time in this world was unfortunately too short." I figured, if this is a place where people believe that ninety years is too short, then it is the right place for the two of us!

And he was right. George Bernard Shaw lived for 94 years.
