Interview with Richard Kearney, States of Mind: Dialogues with Contemporary Thinkers on the European Mind (1995), page 138: "I am a Czech. My second wife was a Slovak. But who knows what we are? I discovered one of my ancestors was a Mores. By definition Mores was a Jewish name, so I don't know what I am. I don't care whether I am Czech of Slovak. For me, it's all the same. I regard being a Czechoslovak as my broader identity, and, therefore, I would like to keep it as it is."
