„In politics, love is a stranger, and when it intrudes upon it nothing is being achieved except hypocrisy.“

—  Hannah Arendt Jewish-American political theorist 1906 - 2004
General sources, Context: In politics, love is a stranger, and when it intrudes upon it nothing is being achieved except hypocrisy. All the characteristics you stress in the Negro people: their beauty, their capacity for joy, their warmth, and their humanity, are well-known characteristics of all oppressed people. They grow out of suffering and they are the proudest possession of all pariahs. Unfortunately, they have never survived the hour of liberation by even five minutes. Hatred and love belong together, and they are both destructive; you can afford them only in private and, as a people, only so long as you are not free. Letter to James Baldwin (21 November 1962).
