Quotation by Hannah Arendt:

The practice of violence changes the world, but the most probable change is a more violent world.

Hannah Arendt     (more by this author)

1906-1975 (Age at death: 69 approx.)

Johanna "Hannah" Arendt (14 October 1906 - 4 December 1975) was a German-American political theorist. Though often described as a philosopher, she rejected that label on the grounds that philosophy is concerned with "man in the singular" and instead described herself as a political theorist because her work centers on the fact that "men, not Man, live on the earth and inhabit the world." Her works deal with the nature of power, and the subjects of politics, direct democracy, authority, and totalitarianism. The Hannah Arendt Prize is named in her honour.
