Brecht

Famous quotes containing the word brecht:

    A man who sees another man on the street corner with only a stump for an arm will be so shocked the first time he’ll give him sixpence. But the second time it’ll only be a threepenny bit. And if he sees him a third time, he’ll have him cold-bloodedly handed over to the police.
    —Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    You don’t need to pray to God any more when there are storms in the sky, but you do have to be insured.
    —Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    To live means to finesse the processes to which one is subjugated.
