Milan Salák once said that important things take place at the Academy.

The Academy of Fine Arts in Prague is the oldest art school in the Czech Republic.

Roland Barthes wrote: The beauty (unlike ugliness) cannot be truly explained. It is being expressed, confirmed and repeated in every part of human body, but it cannot be described.

The internet search engine Google was founded in 1998 and Wikipedia in 2001.

The limit of my world is not only my language but mainly… see above.

Vasil Artamonov and Alexey Klyuykov are wrong. The only aim is not the future but the origin, at least according to Karl Kraus.

Umberto Eco restated the words of scholastic Fathers (Brody? Šimera?), saying that authorities have wax noses.

Karel Císař would certainly remark that such authorities are not compatible.

People on both sides of the wall clutch the same hammer. And they are all connected to the only one Internet.
