In the Words of Hannah Arendt

“Morally speaking, it is hardly less wrong to feel guilty without having done something specific than to feel free of guilt if one is guilty.”—Hannah Arendt, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, 1963.

“The raison d’être of politics is freedom.”—Hannah Arendt, “What is Freedom?” Essays in Understanding, 1961

“[We] frequently forget that it remains the greatest prerogative of every man to be essentially and forever more than anything he can produce or achieve.”—Hannah Arendt, Men in Dark Times, 1968
