what the American philosopher Thomas Nagel terms “mortal questions”: the problems involved in making ethical choices, constructing a just society, responding to suffering and loss, and coming to terms with the prospect of death.

Great workbook and exercises

This is definitely more of a workbook than a reading book, if that makes sense. Pick it up ready to think about your life. Some of the exercises I found more effective than others but they all helped bring a little perspec

Kurt Vonnegut
“She believed, and was entitled to believe, I must say, that all human beings were evil by nature, whether tormentors or victims, or idle standers-by. They could only create meaningless tragedies, she said, since they weren't nearly intelligent enough to accomplish all the good they were meant to do.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Jailbird

Kurt Vonnegut
“It goes against the American storytelling grain to have someone in a situation he can't get out of, but I think this is very usual in life. [...] And it strikes me as gruesome and comical that in our culture we have an expectation that a man can always solve his problems. There is an implication that if you just have a little more energy, a little more fight, the problem can always be solved. That is so untrue that it makes me want to cry--or laugh.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Wampeters, Foma and Granfalloons

Kurt Vonnegut
“Unfortunately, that still leaves plenty of Americans who don't read much or think much -- who will still be extremely useful in unjust wars. We are sick about that. We did the best we could. ”
Kurt Vonnegut, Wampeters, Foma and Granfalloons

Kurt Vonnegut
“It's all right,' she said. 'You couldn't help it that you were born without a heart. At least you tried to believe what the people with hearts believed- so you were a good man just the same.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Jailbird

“Thinking the guy up ahead knows what he's doing is the most dangerous religion there is.”
