The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui Quotes (showing 1-3 of 3)
“If we could learn to look instead of gawking,
We'd see the horror in the heart of farce,
If only we could act instead of talking,
We wouldn't always end up on our arse.
This was the thing that nearly had us mastered;
Don't yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,
The bitch that bore him is in heat again.”
Bertolt Brecht, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
“Therefore learn how to see and not to gape.
To act instead of talking all day long.
The world was almost won by such an ape!
The nations put him where his kind belong.
But don't rejoice too soon at your escape -
The womb he crawled from is still going strong.”
Bertolt Brecht, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
“E voi, imparate che occorre vedere e non guardare in aria; occorre agire e non parlare. Questo mostro stava, una volta, per governare il mondo! Il popolo lo spensero, ma ora non cantiamo vittoria troppo presto: il grembo da cui nacque è ancora fecondo.”
Bertolt Brecht, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
