Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

There will always be One against All, one person against all others. [This is so] not because One is terribly wise and All are terribly foolish, but because the process of thinking and researching, which finally yields truth, can only be accomplished by an individual person. In its singularity or duality, one human being seeks and finds – not the truth (Lessing) –, but some truth.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most striking difference between ancient and modern sophists is that the ancients were satisfied with a passing victory of argument at the expense of truth, whereas the moderns want a more lasting victory at the expense of reality.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The history of humanity is not a hotel where someone can rent a room whenever it suits him; nor is it a vehicle which we board or get out of at random. Our past will be for us a burden beneath which we can only collapse for as long as we refuse to understand the present and fight for a better future. Only then—but from that moment on—will the burden become a blessing, that is, a weapon in the battle for freedom.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is in the nature of a group and its power to turn against independence, the property of individual strength.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The aim of totalitarian education has never been to instill convictions but to destroy the capacity to form any.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
