Famous quotes containing the word brecht:

    No one can be good for long if goodness is not in demand.
    —Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    It is not enough to demand insight and informative images of reality from the theater. Our theater must stimulate a desire for understanding, a delight in changing reality. Our audience must experience not only the ways to free Prometheus, but be schooled in the very desire to free him. Theater must teach all the pleasures and joys of discovery, all the feelings of triumph associated with liberation.
    —Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Mixing one’s wines may be a mistake, but old and new wisdom mix admirably.
    —Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)
