George Bernard Shaw IS a modern writer in the modern era who used modern language. (He died in 1950.) He is not some medieval poet whose work needs to be "adapted to modern language." That is his actual quote.

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man."
