A friend in need is a friend too much

Here is a short text of Arnon Grunberg in the Volkskrant (The peoples paper, sounds quite commie doesn't ?)


UNProfor toy cars

I bought this set in 1995. Complete with a thematic sheet to play on (with war torn houses etc.).
The funny thing was that the heavy equipment in the toy box was not available to us in the field ...
It actually says 'Peace Maker' on the box ... how ironic.


One of the best known Shakespeare citation, I like it a lot. One of the few things I remember clearly of my English classes at school.

Found it on the www somewhere:

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing." --From Macbeth (V, v, 19)
