  Resolved Question: Vaclav Havel Quote - Can
Hi, I'm looking for a translation of the following quotation made by the last president of Czechoslovakia, Vaclav Havel, in its original Czech form. It is a quote from his essay 'Power of the Powerless': “You do not become a ''dissident'' just because you decide one day to take up this most unusual career. You are thrown into it by your personal sense of responsibility, combined with a complex set of external circumstances. You are cast out of the existing structures and placed in a position of conflict with them. It begins as an attempt to do your work well, and ends with being branded an enemy of society.” I would like any answers to contain a link to the site you found the translation on, so I know that it hasn't simply been translated with Google Translator. 10 points will be awarded to the first precise translation as soon as I have checked.
