Passages worth memorising

Post by Jonathan » Fri Apr 17, 2015 6:39 am

A language learning method I'm using (one of several, not the only) is from a research article on the learning methods used by some of the highest performing competitive Chinese learners of English. It involves memorizing a passage verbatim, the contents of which are then used as frameworks and building blocks.

...Which leads me to ask: What's worth memorizing in Dutch? Besides models of language use, I'm looking for something thoughtful, meaningful, beautiful, etc. Great literature, poetry (as requested in my other thread viewtopic.php?f=27&t=6898) philosophy, folk stories, even jokes, etc. ... Preferably something that doesn't wear out too readily with repetition.

Any recommendations? Favorite quotes?
