The Good Soldier Švejk people
"The Good Soldier Švejk is a novel with an unusually rich array of characters. In addition to the many who directly form part of the plot, a large number of fictive and real people (and animals) are mentioned; either through Švejks anecdotes, the narrative or indirectly through words and expressions."

Challenges of translating Švejk into English: A report on the experimental project of its “Chicago version”
"A decision to translate the 207,009 words of Hašek’s unfinished novel in my judgment cannot be – and in my case indeed was not – a result of a rational consideration."

Baťa and Hašek Changed My Life
"I ended up in hospital with alcohol poisoning. I felt horrible and the next day I was depressed because I thought they would throw me out of school. But the doc was very kind and did not sent a note to the school, but gave me a book instead. You know which book? Stories of The Good Soldier Švejk (Osudy dobrého vojaka Švejka). I was laughing so loudly while I was reading it, the nurses were wondering what was going on. Indeed the day before they couldn’t give me a blood test, I was so weak. They called the doctor, but he only waved his hand: he is allright."

Schwejking - the film
Nataša von Kopp

An August 31, 2001 Radio Free Europe report of a Hašek Museum Being Set up in Bugulma, i.e. Bögelmä, Tatarstan. (Look for the sixth news item on the list.) Jaroslav Hašek served there as a Deputy Commissar for the Red Army in October through December 1918. Hašek's "memorial apartment", a.k.a. the J. Gashek's Literary Memorial Museum (as listed in Russian on the Tatarstan National Museum's list of museums in Tatarstan). The  e-mail address of Hašek's Museum in Bugulma" . Streets were named after Jaroslav Hasek ('Gasek' in the Russian language as in its alphabet there is no letter or the sound 'H') in Kiev, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Kazan, and St. Petersburg, to name a few places.

Grid, Hype & Rock 'n' Roll
Tom Gibbs
Director of Worldwide Strategy and Planning, Intel Corporation
"It was reminiscent of the title character in Jaroslav Hasek’s famous unfinished novel "The Good Soldier Svejk."  When all is said and done, the good soldier Svejk never really gave a hoot about his fearless leader or the public relations machine. The people toiling in the trenches in the Grid community have long stopped caring what it's called or how folks outside the community think about it. They're too busy making it work and haggling though standards needed to make it work better.
"Unfortunately, in the same way that political conflict looks absurd to the good soldier Svejk, technological evolution isn't as simple or pure as an engineering mindset would like to understand."
