Hannah Arendt quotes

3 quotes by Hannah Arendt


... 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 a different hat.

Hannah Arendt       
Revolutionaries do not make revolutions! The revolutionaries are those who know when power is lying in the street and when they can pick it up.

Hannah Arendt       
If the world is to contain a public space, it cannot be erected for one generation and planned for the living only; it must transcend the life-span of mortal men.

Hannah Arendt
