Where Words and Deeds Have Not Parted Company


Power is actualized only

where word and deed have not parted company,

where words are not empty and deeds not brutal,

where words are not used to veil intentions but to disclose realities,

and deeds are not used to violate and destroy

but to establish relations and create new realities.

– Hannah Arendt, quoted by Edward T. Chambers in Roots for Radicals
