Beginnings

Beginnings

This is a 1969 photo of one of America's political philosopher and scholar, Hannah Arendt. (AP Photo)

…startling unexpectedness is inherent in all beginnings … The fact that man is capable of action means that the unexpected can be expected from him, that he is able to perform what is infinitely improbable. And this again is possible only because each man is unique, so that with each birth something uniquely new comes into the world.

Hannah Arendt,
The Human Condition
