Slaughterhouse-Five

1 Jul

Kurt Vonnegut, I admire how you spill words as sour or acidic as they may sound, and at times as self-deprecating as lime-proof rust growing like moss in underwater echoing sewage canals. The banal and the glorious and the beautiful, you tell it as it is and for that I greatly admire your vulnerability, courage and humanity.

I wanted to jot down some passages that resonated with me thus far.

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.

I learn by going where I have to go.

Make them stop…don’t let them move anymore at all…there make them freeze…once and for all… So that they won’t disappear anymore!

    Right now it seems like Movable Type is the top blogging
    platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    Having read this I thought it was rather informative. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this information together.

    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and
    leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
