Kurt Vonnegut's 5 fave quotes

So I decided that my first Free Friday post will be dedicated to beautiful, extraordinary, wise Kurt Vonnegut's thoughts.
Here I picked 5 quotes that 've cought my eye. Hope you'll enjoy them.


I asked my son Mark what he thought life was all about, and he said, “We are here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is.” I think that says it best.

 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"


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."


If you want to really hurt your parents, and you don't have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

And the last epic one.

 Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

P.S. Whilst making this post I was listening to this
