Dorothea van Zyl, director of the Woordfees, was honoured with a prestigious Dutch/Flemish award at the annual Woordfees dinner, on Saturday evening (8 March). She received the Visser-Neerlandia prize for among others her role in starting the Woordfees in 2000 and expanding it to become one of the three biggest, mainly Afrikaans cultural festivals in South Africa; her initiative to start the Woorde Open Wêrelde project in 2003, through which more than 180 000 people in seven provinces were reached, as well as her work to strengthen relations between South Africa and the Netherlands since 1991. (Stellenbosch University news). She also was awarded a special certificate by the SA Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns for her great contribution since 1999 as organizer of the US Woordfees and for her expertise in many areas she makes available to the Academy.

Get hold of the book, Stellenbosch Writers, as long as it is available!    Introduction    Acknowledgements
Congratulations on the book. It is an excellent job. To paraphrase an old Afrikaans poem , who could ever think that Stellenbosch has so many writers. You have performed a great service!

This book will be a valuable piece of Stellenbossiana.

Quotes of the day:

Humans think they are smarter than dolphins because we build cars and buildings and start wars, etc., and all that dolphins do is swim in the water, eat fish, and play around. Dolphins believe that they are smarter for exactly the same reasons.
Douglas Adams

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Mahatma Gandhi.

No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
Nelson Mandela

Great spirits have always been violently oppressed by mediocre minds.
Albert Einstein

Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so.
Bertrand Russell

Schöne Tage - nicht weinen, dass sie vergangen, sondern lächeln, dass sie gewesen.
Rabindranath Tagore

Wer im Gedächtnis seiner Lieben lebt, der ist nicht tot, der ist nur fern; tot ist nur, wer vergessen wird.
Immanuel Kant

Was ist ein Einbruch in eine Bank gegen die Gründung einer Bank?
What's breaking into a bank compared with founding a bank?
Bertolt Brecht, Dreigroschenoper (Beggar's Opera)

There is no doubt that I have lots of words inside me; but at moments, like rush-hour traffic at the mouth of a tunnel, they jam.
John Updike

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
Groucho Marx

I have difficulty with the notion that art must be challenging.
Paul Emsley

Beauty is the promise of happiness.
Stendhal

She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B.
Dorothy Parker

Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
Oscar Wilde

I always find it more difficult to say the things I mean than the things I don't.
W. Somerset Maugham

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Dr. Seuss

Anything too stupid to be said is sung.
Voltaire
