Grub first, then ethics.
Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956)
Contributed by: Zaady
What a miserable thing life is: you're living in clover, only the clover isn't good enough.
Poverty makes you sad as well as wise.
Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true.
War is like love, it always finds a way.
Don't be afraid of death so much as an inadequate life.

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear- And he shows them pearly white- Just a jackknife has Macheath, dear- And he keeps it out of sight.
Why be a man when you can be a success?
