Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle.

Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.

WELKOM! WELCOME! WILLKOMMEN! BIENVENUE!


Baie welkom hier by my hoekie van die internet!

Soldaat.Co.Za is my persoonlike blog waar ek kan stoom afblaas, myself opsweep of kalmeer, of sommer net gesels oor dinge waaroor ek ‘n opinie het en bereid is om myself daaroor uit te laat (want soms is ‘n stil bek ‘n heel bek…).

Most of what I write and publish here will be written in Afrikaans, but at times I might feel the need to address a wider audience, or even a specific non-Afrikaans audience – in English, obviously!

Geniet die kuier, lees die blog, en voel vry om jou sê te sê!

Groete!

Jaco (aka Soldaat)

PS: SO LAASTE WOORDJIE VOOR JY GAAN…


Ek swets..  Jip, my naam is Jaco/Soldaat en ek swets.  Selfs wanneer ek skryf. Soms veral wanneer ek skryf. Nooit onder die belt nie, maar soms erg in jou gesig.  As jy een van daai easily offended tipes is, stel ek voor jy hou verby en gaan soek prentjies van katjies en sulke stuff op die internet.  Proceed with caution – moenie sê ek het jou nie gewaarsku nie.  ;-)

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.Theodore Roosevelt
