‘Om te verlang, om verpletter te voel, om melodramaties ineen te stort, om te smag, om te verbeel, om ‘n hoogtepunt weer te wil beleef, dis die bevestiging van ‘n volronde bestaan, dat jy rijkdom in you binneste hou.  ‘n Mens kan nie net van duur donkersjokolade leef nie, af en toe moet jy hap aan ‘n kommin stroopsoet affêre.’

In my best attempt at translating:

‘ To long for, to feel shattered, to collapse in the most melodramatic fashion, to yearn, to imagine, wanting to re-live a highlight, just once more, this is the verification of a holistic existence, that you have the richness of life within you.  No-one can live off expensive, dark chocolate alone, and every now and then, you need to just bite into the common sweet stuff too.’

Why we cry in soppy movies, get emotional at small things, feel too deeply and love too much.  And that’s it is ok to do so …
