You are thrown into it by your personal sense of responsibility, combined with a complex set of external circumstances.

The dissident does not operate in the realm of genuine power at all. He is not seeking power. He has no desire for office and does not gather votes. He does not attempt to charm the public, he offers nothing and promises nothing.

His actions simply articulate his dignity as a citizen, regardless of the cost. — Vaclav Havel
