Missing Kurt Vonnegut

From the website Hullabaloo:

A good time to remind ourselves why he was…well…Kurt Vonnegut:

“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.’ ”

“Dear future generations: Please accept our apologies. We were rolling drunk on petroleum.”

“I was once asked if I had any ideas for a really scary reality TV show. I have one reality show that would really make your hair stand on end: ‘C-students from Yale.’”

"There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization. If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Mafia."

“It’s perfectly ordinary to be a socialist. It’s perfectly normal to be in favor of fire departments.”

I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”

“Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.”
