These past few months several quotations of Erasmus, a famous Rotterdam born Humanist, emerged all over the city: at the entrance of the subway at Rotterdam Centraal, the central railway station, on the wall of Hotel Emma at the Nieuwe Binnenweg and on the airshafts of the subway on Weena.
Some of these so-called Adagia by our famous towny are over 500 years old, but surprisingly up-to-date. Marcel Potters shared this view and wrote about it in the RD/AD on the 16th of January.
The next months you will be surprised by more of his inspiring quotations in public space.
