Text Quotes
Nietzsche ... has caused [philosophers] so much confusion  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Equality...is the result of human organization. We are not born equal.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Under conditions of tyranny it is far easier to act than to think  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Evil thrives on apathy and cannot exist without it  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Where everybody is guilty, nobody is  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Every end in history necessarily contains a new beginning  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Entirely new concepts are very rare in politics  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) To speak of the impotence of power is no longer a witty paradox  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) One must think with the body and the soul or not think at all  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) The business of thinking ... undoes every morning what it had finished the night before  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) In politics, love is a stranger, and when it intrudes upon it nothing is being achieved except hypocrisy  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) That Hegelian dialectics should provide a wonderful instrument for always being right, because they permit the interpretations of all defeats as the beginning of victory, is obvious. One of the most beautiful examples of this kind of sophistry occurred after 1933 when the German Communists for nearly two years refused to recognize that Hitler’s victory had been a defeat for the German Communist Party  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Politically speaking, tribal nationalism [patriotism] always insists that its own people are surrounded by ‘a world of enemies’ - ‘one against all’ - and that a fundamental difference exists between this people and all others. It claims its people to be unique, individual, incompatible with all others, and denies theoretically the very possibility of a common mankind long before it is used to destroy the humanity of man  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) The human condition comprehends more than the condition under which life has been given to man. Men are conditioned beings because everything they come in contact with turns immediately into a condition of their existence. The world in which the vita activa spends itself consists of things produced by human activities; but the things that owe their existence exclusively to men nevertheless constantly condition their human makers  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Solitude is the human condition in which I keep myself company. Loneliness comes about when I am alone without being able to split up into the two-in-one, without being able to keep myself company  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Men always want to be terribly influential, but I see that as somewhat external. Do I imagine myself being influential? No. I want to understand. And if others understand--in the same sense that I have understood--that gives me a sense of satisfaction, like feeling at home  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Our problem today is not how to expropriate the expropriators but, rather, how to arrange matters so that the masses, dispossessed by industrial society in capitalist and socialist systems, can regain property. For this reason alone, the alternative between capitalism and socialism is false-not only because neither exists anywhere in its pure state anyhow, but because we have here twins, each wearing different hats  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Rage is by no means an automatic reaction to misery and suffering as such; no one reacts with rage to an incurable disease or to an earthquake or, for that matter, to social conditions that seem to be unchangeable. Only where there is reason to suspect that conditions could be changed and are not does rage arise  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) It interrupts any doing, any ordinary activities, no matter what they happen to be. All thinking demands a stop-and-think  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Plurality of languages: [...] It is crucial 1. that there are many languages and that they differ not only in vocabulary, but also in grammar, and so in mode of thought and 2. that all languages are learnable.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) The defiance of established authority, religious and secular, social and political, as a world-wide phenomenon may well one day be accounted the outstanding event of the last decade.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) What really distinguishes this generation in all countries from earlier generations ... is its determination to act, its joy in action, the assurance of being able to change things by one’s own efforts.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) There is all the difference in the world between the criminal’s avoiding the public eye and the civil disobedience’s taking the law into his own hands in open defiance. This distinction between an open violation of the law, performed in public, and a clandestine one is so glaringly obvious that it can be neglected only by prejudice or ill will.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) The ultimate end of human acts is eudaimonia, happiness in the sense of living well, which all men desire; all acts are but different means chosen to arrive at it.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Culture relates to objects and is a phenomenon of the world; entertainment relates to people and is a phenomenon of life.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) Ideological thinking becomes emancipated from the reality that we perceive with our five senses, and insists on a ‘truer’ reality concealed behind all perceptible things, dominating them from this place of concealment and requiring a sixth sense that enables us to become aware of it.  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) In order to go on living one must try to escape the death involved in perfectionism  (Hannah Arendt Quotes) The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil  (Hannah Arendt Quotes)
