Famous quotes containing the words subsequent and/or releases:

    And he smiled a kind of sickly smile, and curled up on the floor, And the subsequent proceedings interested him no more.
    Francis Bret Harte (1836–1902)

    We need a type of theatre which not only releases the feelings, insights and impulses possible within the particular historical field of human relations in which the action takes place, but employs and encourages those thoughts and feelings which help transform the field itself.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)
