Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) British playwright and critic

This aphorism is frequently attributed to Shaw, but not found in his works and not attributed to him or in this form before around 1990. It may be a misattributed paraphrase from Thomas Szasz, The Second Sin (1973): "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds; it is something one creates."
