Vaclav Havel

Vaclav Havel

He was the tenth and last president of Czechoslovakia (198992) and the first President of the Czech Republic (19932003).
Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us. Vaclav Havel quotes
