What is happiness

Because happiness is a memory 
happiness exists while at the same time 
the reverse is true,

this is what I mean: because happiness reminds us 
happiness follows het 
and thereby we escape it

and the other way around, this is what I mean: that we 
search for happiness because it 
hides in our memories and

the other way around, this is what I mean: happiness 
must be somewhere and ever because we 
we remember this and this reminds us.

Rutger Kopland

Through his works, the award-winning poet Rutger Kopland is an asset to Dutch poetry. In the Netherlands, Rutger has reached the top of his field with his poetry, but he has many other skills besides his talent for poetry. Between 1981 and 1995, he was Professor of Biological Psychiatry at the University of Groningen. He endeavored to inspire his students with his knowledge. With the cotton napkin with poem, he inspires you at your table.

100% cotton

The napkin is made in the Netherlands, completely from cotton. Keep your napkin at its best by washing it at a maximum of 40 degrees. This will keep it soft and give it years of life.
