G.B. SHAW ~ PASSION AND INSPIRATION OF THE MUSE

* “I want my dark lady. I want my angel. I want my tempter. I want the lighter of my seven lamps of beauty, honour, laughter, music, love, life and immortality. I want my inspiration, my folly, my happiness, my divinity, my madness, my selfishness, my final sanity and sanctification, my transfiguration, my purification, my light across the sea, my palm across the desert, my garden of lovely flowers, my million nameless joys, my day’s wage, my night’s dream, my darling and my star.” ~

George Bernard Shaw in a letter to Mrs. Campbell.

Mrs. Campbell 1865 – 1940 was a British actress; the first actress to play “Eliza Doolittle in George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, which was the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady.
