The Dutch


The first impression one gets of Holland is that it is a calm, sedate  and simple land. The slow rhythm of life is even seen in the barges on the canals and the bicycles on the roads. One gradually discovers this equanimity  of daily existence is not in accord with the instrinsic nature of the Dutch. These people are moved by strong feelings that are not compatible  with the serenity of the world around them. There is a conflict between the rigid, traditional social rules and the desire for liberty and independence, both of which the Dutch revere.

  • sedate- calm, dignified, and unhurried.
  • equanimity- mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, esp. in a difficult situation.
  • compatible- cocok, sepadan, sesuai
  • serenity- the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
  • revere – feel deep respect or admiration for (something).
