-----God created Earth,
except Holland who was created by the Dutch---
Earth and water, originally confounded, finally found each their own place and
seem to keep it that way.The Dutch are a very special people, maybe unique in
Europe. Maybe it's because of their tumultuous history, fighting against major
nations like Spain, Austria, France and England in earlier times. Maybe because of that difficulty of water and earth to
be together, their constant struggle to tame the sea, being constantly on guard that the Dutch
that obstinacy, that methodic spirit, its taste for reflection and liberty.
Democracy is sacred here. The right to difference is probably the one the Dutch are the most
attached to. Who can blame them for that?
