The Wise Words of a Wise Man

The words of Vaclav Havel while serving as President of the Czech Republic in 1998:

“It is my profound conviction that the world requires – today more than ever – enlightened, thoughtful politicians who are bold and broad-minded enough to consider things that lie beyond the scope of their immediate influence in both space and time. We need politicians willing and able to rise above their own power interests, or the particular interests of their parties or states, and act in accordance with the fundamental interests of humanity today ….”

Vaclav Havel died on December 18th 2011.
