        We should care for each other more than we care for ideas, or else we will end up killing each other.

          Have you heard about the Dutch author Kader Abdolah? His work 'The Hous of the Mosque' is worth reading. It's also in the same time period and beyond. Amazing fiction. It tells the story of a family during that time whose inner relationships change during and after the revolution. There is so much more though in the story. It's definitely worth your time.


          Last night I finished reading 'Naming Infinity' by Loren Graham and Jean-Michel Kantor. The personal stories behind the mathematicians are touching and surprising. Maths was never so interesting before. Religious ideas (Name Worshipping) inspired some of the charactesr in that book to amazing results.

          One of the greatest Dutch writers ever, Lodewijk van Deyssel, wrote some of the most beautiful proze I have ever read. His book 'Uit het leven van Frank Rozelaar' is available online:

            Yes I did - several decades ago. Enid Blyton had the knack of bringing the characters to life
