Brecht Without Mask

Brecht Without Mask












        Bertolt Brecht - Naked Mind


Don't be afraid of death so much as an inadequate life.
 ***
 He who laughs has not yet heard the bad news.
 ***
Hungry man, reach for the book: it is a weapon.
 ***
Sometimes it's more important to be human, than to have good taste.
****
Poverty makes you wise but it's a curse.

***
Unhappy the nation that is in need of heroes.
***
What a miserable thing life is: you're living in clover, only the clover isn't good enough.
  ***
 Why be a man when you can be a success?
***
What they could do with 'round here is a good war. What else can you expect with peace running wild all over the place? You know what the trouble with peace is? No organization.
 ***
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
