Vaclav Havel

Vaclav Havel

He was the tenth and last president of Czechoslovakia (1989–92) and the first President of the Czech Republic (1993–2003).
The tragedy of modern man is not that he knows less and less about the meaning of his own life, but that it bothers him less and less.More Vaclav Havel quotes [08/13/2011 05:08:30]
The exercise of power is determined by thousands of interactions between the world of the powerful and that of the powerless, all the more so because these worlds are never divided by a sharp line: everyone has a small part of himself in both.More Vaclav Havel quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The kind of hope that I often think about…I understand above all as a state of mind, not a state of the world. Either we have hope within us, or we don’t. It is a dimension of the soul It’s not essentially dependent upon some particular observation of the world or estimate of the situation. 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]
Either we have hope within us or we don't It is a dimension of the soul, and is not essentially dependent on some particular observation of the World or observation of the situation. Hope is not prognostication. It is an orientation of the spirit, an orientation of the heart.More Vaclav Havel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
