“Our indifference towards others can after all result in only one thing: the indifference of others towards us.
Vaclav Havel, quoted in Havel: A Life”
Michael Žantovský

“Bands were first forced to abandon their repertoire of Anglo-American standards and covers and obliged to sing in Czech, a lovely and poetic language, albeit with a pronounced shortage of one-word rhymes that does not lend itself easily to rocking rhythms.”
Michael Žantovský, Havel: A Life

“Although Stalinism, the trials, the suppressions of uprisings in Berlin and in Budapest, had led many of the original believers to re-examine and renounce their faith, to be a Marxist–Leninist in the early sixties was still something not quite disreputable, if not exactly respectable. After 1968, it became a synonym for opportunism, thick-headedness or worse.”
Michael Žantovský, Havel: A Life
