Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.”
Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“God made mud.
God got lonesome.
So God said to some of the mud, "Sit up!"
"See all I've made," said God, "the hills, the sea, the
sky, the stars."
And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look
around.
Lucky me, lucky mud.
I, mud, sat up and saw what a nice job God had done.
Nice going, God.
Nobody but you could have done it, God! I certainly
couldn't have.
I feel very unimportant compared to You.
The only way I can feel the least bit important is to
think of all the mud that didn't even get to sit up and
look around.
I got so much, and most mud got so little.
Thank you for the honor!
Now mud lies down again and goes to sleep.
What memories for mud to have!
What interesting other kinds of sitting-up mud I met!
I loved everything I saw!
Good night.
I will go to heaven now.
I can hardly wait...
To find out for certain what my wampeter was...
And who was in my karass...
And all the good things our karass did for you.
Amen.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.”
Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“The big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart.”
Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
