This website presents close to 600 authors of books. It is my service to the community and was created to present Stellenbosch authors of books, thereby giving an idea what is going on in this lovely university town in the middle of South Africa's winelands. It was also my tool to find the information for the book, which was published in March 2005. Only 300 copies were printed. 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!
Hermann Giliomee
This book will be a valuable piece of Stellenbossiana.
Gerrit Kruger

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)

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