Hannah Arendt

  • By its very nature the beautiful is isolated from everything else. From beauty no road leads to reality.
  • Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda.
  • The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution.
  • Nothing we use or hear or touch can be expressed in words that equal what is given by the senses.
  • Economic growth may one day turn out to be a curse rather than a good, and under no conditions can it either lead into freedom or constitute a proof for its existence.
  • The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.
