Darjeeling, Bergamot and Walnuts


Brecht on life

In Praise of the Fighters Those who are weak don't fight. Those who are stronger might fight for an hour. Those who are stronger still might fight for many years. The strongest fight their whole life. They are the indispensable ones.
-- from the version of The Mother that Brecht did with composer Hans Eisler in 1931.
