Impressive article by Pieter Steinz in NRC Handelsblad (Dutch only) about Wolkers’ life in which he refers to an interview with Wolkers in 1996 by Hella Haase:

“De eeuwigheid is het ogenblik waarvan je zegt: dat zal ik nooit vergeten”.

Beautiful.

PS I don’t have the guts to even try to translate this in English.
