I love this man. Everything I’ve read by him has been so badass and fabulous. I can’t wait to have more time to read the rest of what he has to say.
Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before… He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way.
-Cat’s Cradle 1963

—Player Piano 1952

How nice—to feel nothing, and still get full credit for being alive.
—Slaughterhouse-Five, 1969
