New favorite author: Kurt Vonnegut

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

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.
—Player Piano 1952

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