The Gift that Keeps on Giving

George Bernard Shaw "with renewed compliments"

As George Bernard Shaw perused the shelves of a secondhand bookstore, he came across a volume of his plays. He opened the book and found his handwriting on the flyleaf, addressed to a friend, with the words, “With the compliments of George Bernard Shaw.”

Mr. Shaw purchased the book and sent it back to the friend, with the additional words, “With renewed compliments. G.B.S.”
