Bertolt Brecht (born 10 February 1898, died 14 August 1956) was a German poet, playwright, and theatre director. Widely considered one of the great dramatic creations of the modern stage, Mother Courage and Her Children is Brecht’s most profound statement against war.

10 quotations:

  1. Unhappy the land that is in need of heroes.
  2. He who laughs last has not yet heard the bad news.
  3. Don’t be afraid of death so much as an inadequate life.
  4. No one can be good for long if goodness is not in demand.
  5. I don’t know what a man is. Only that every man has his price.
  6. Sometimes it’s more important to be human, than to have good taste.
  7. There are some with brains and some without. It makes for a better division of labour.
  8. When something seems ‘the most obvious thing in the world’ it means that any attempt to understand the world has been given up.
