""People usually accumulate information without trying, in the course of engaging in interesting experiences. The interest is always in the experience, rather than in the information. The intentional acquisition of information, especially at the arbitrary behest of others, is one of the most tedious and unnatural activities anyone can engage in."" Aug 17, 2014 07:37PM

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

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Kurt Vonnegut
“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”
