Bertolt Brecht

Bertolt Brecht ( ; born Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht; 10 February 1898 – 14 August 1956) was a German poet, playwright, and theatre director.

An influential theatre practitioner of the 20th century, Brecht made equally significant contributions to dramaturgy and theatrical production, the latter particularly through the seismic impact of the tours undertaken by the Berliner Ensemble – the post-war theatre company operated by Brecht and his wife, long-time collaborator and actress Helene Weigel.

Famous quotes by bertolt brecht:

    Don’t be afraid of death so much as an inadequate life.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    The world of knowledge takes a crazy turn
    When teachers themselves are taught to learn.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Art and science coincide insofar as both aim to improve the lives of men and women. The latter normally concerns itself with profit, the former with pleasure. In the coming age, art will fashion our entertainment out of new means of productivity in ways that will simultaneously enhance our profit and maximize our pleasure.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Literary works cannot be taken over like factories, or literary forms of expression like industrial methods. Realist writing, of which history offers many widely varying examples, is likewise conditioned by the question of how, when and for what class it is made use of.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Science knows only one commandment—contribute to science.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)
