"So it goes....."


"When the last living thing has died on account of us, how poetical it would be if Earth could say, in a voice floating up perhaps from the floor of the Grand Canyon, 'It is done." People did not like it here."


"The world doesn't need more love. It needs more common decency."


"Freud said he didn't know what women wanted. I know what women want: a whole lot of people to talk to. What do they want to talk about? They want to talk about everything. What do men want? They want a lot of pals, and they wish people wouldn't get so mad at them."


"He finally stopped laughing at his own agony and that of those around him. He denounced life on this planet as a crock. He died."


"Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt."


"So it goes."

(Kurt Vonnegut died on Wednesday, April 11th. He was 84. RIP, Kurt. Yours was a literary voice that was irreplaceable. There will never be another like you!)
