"God damn it, you’ve got to be kind."


kurt

- Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007. "So it goes."
“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.’”
God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, 1974

Comments:
He was something special, and even more so to me because he grew up in my hometown. There've been a number of talented people to leave my hometown and head to NYC, but Kurt Vonnegut was the Mark Twain of Indy.

"God damn it, you've got to be kind." I think my father-in-law might've stolen that one from him; more than a few times.

RIP, Kurt Vonnegut, your writing will forever be esteemed.
