Een fijne uitdaging vandaag, lezers! Bewijzen dat Charlotte Brönte (prentje) ongelijk heeft:
If you think that anything like a romance is preparing for you, reader, you never were more mistaken. Do you anticipate sentiment, and poetry, and reverie? Do you expect passion, and stimulus, and melodrama? Calm your expectations; reduce them to a lowly standard. Something real, cool and solid lies before you; something unromantic as Monday morning, when all who have work wake with the consciousness that they must rise and betake themselves thereto.
Charlotte Brönte, Prelude to Shirley, 1849.
Maandagmorgen rocks. Althans wanneer we dat zelf zo willen.
