Books: Kurt Vonnegut

I have read four novels by him through pirated e-books but this guy deserves to be rich even in death. He’s just too good. So, I went broke for four of his books.

Yay. 🙂 I’m a happy fangirl.

Classic Kurt Vonnegut quotes:

One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us.
– Kurt Vonnegut, “Cold Turkey”, In These Times, May 10, 2004

Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.
– Kurt Vonnegut, A Man without a Country

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.
-Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night
