Dans un courrier dat=E9 du 04/04/99 00:02:02  , Gerald Koenig a =E9crit :

<< "If a task is once begun,
 Never leave it till it's done,
 Be the labor great or small,
 Do it well or not at all."
=20
 I've tried to live by it, but I never realized that the sentiment, at
 least, might have a Dutch origin. >>

Apparently not Dutch exclusively :

" 'Morgen, morgen, gar nicht heute'
Sagen alle feulen Leute"

"Ne remets pas =E0 demain
Ce que tu peux
Le jour m=EAme faire"

etc.

And a heavy duty for a conlanger, indeed ;-)

(but for sure Dutch know how to do it cheaper - that's a joke, Irina :=20
