Bertolt Brecht Quotes



Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.
- Bertolt Brecht


“I’ve noticed,” said Mr. Keuner, “that a lot of people are put off by our teaching because we know the answer to everything. Couldn’t we, in the interests of propaganda, draw up a list of questions which appear to us quite unresolved?”
- Bertholt Brecht
  Anecdotes of Mr. Keuner


The law was made for one thing alone, for the exploitation of those who don’t understand it, or are prevented by naked misery from obeying it.
- Bertolt Brecht


Those who take the meat from the table
teach contentment
Those for whom the taxes are destined
Demand sacrifice.
Those who eat their fill
speak to the hungry of wonderful times to come.
Those who lead the country into the abyss
Call ruling too difficult
For ordinary men.
- Bertolt Brecht
