    • 1981, Trotwaer, page 390.
      As in besetene stoart er him yn it "frije" libben, rint (en naait) de hoeren (fan foaren likegoed as fan achteren) plat, en set him mei de domdryste gekte fan in psychopaat ôf tsjin alles wat him mar oan oarder en tradysje foar de fuotten komt.
      Like a madman he throws himself into the "free" life, frequents the whores and fucks them silly (as much frontally as from behind), and rejects any kind of order and tradition that he runs into with the obstreperous madness of a psychopath.
