Wisdom of Kurt Vonnegut

  • "Unk, the big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe that there is such a thing as being smart." - The Sirens of Titan

  • “Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”

  • “Dear future generations: Please accept our apologies. We were rolling drunk on petroleum.”

  • “Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.”

  • True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.

  • We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.

  • "Son, they say there isn't any royalty in this country but do you want me to tell you how to be a king in the United States of America? Just fall through the hole in a privy and come out smelling like a rose." - The Sirens of Titan
