Kurt Vonnegut

Wednesday, April 11, 2007 by Dave Winer.

The author speaking through one of his characters, Eliot Rosewater:

"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.'"
Vonnegut died this evening in NY. He was 84. Permalink to this paragraph
