Sisa Petse I love this! ‘If I were told that I could write a novel in which I could indisputably establish as true my point of view on all social questions, I would not dedicate two hours to such work, but If I were told that what I wrote would be read twenty years from now by those children today, and that they would weep and laugh over it and fall in love with the life in it, then I would dedicate all my existence and all my powers to it.’-Leo Tolstoy. A hundred and forty years later I’m reading and enjoying the book.

Ziyanda Xaso and here i thought you were not a fan of fiction, from some of your previous comments :-)

Sisa Petse If I knew then what I now know...please pardon me!
