Vaclav Havel

Vaclav Havel

He was the tenth and last president of Czechoslovakia (198992) and the first President of the Czech Republic (19932003).
The law is only one of several imperfect and more or less external ways of defending what is better in life against what is worse. By itself, the law can never create anything better. Establishing respect for the law does not automatically ensure a better life for that, after all, is a job for people and not for laws and institutions.More Vaclav Havel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The role of the writer is not simply to arrange Being according to his own lights; he must also serve as a medium to Being and remain open to its often unfathomable dictates. This is the only way the work can transcend its creator and radiate its meaning further than the author himself can see or perceive.More Vaclav Havel quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We fell morally ill because we became used to saying something different from what we thought.More Vaclav Havel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.More Vaclav Havel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Truth is not merely what we are thinking, but also why, to whom and under what circumstances we say it.More Vaclav Havel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
