I’m a little behind on this, but here goes another day of the quotes challenge. Today I will once again choose a quote giver, rather than a specific quote :).
Today I choose Kurt Vonnegut. I still remember finding a well-worn copy of Galapagos in my dad’s office. I couldn’t have been more than 8 or 9, but I was a voracious reader and instantly asked if I could have it. I read it within a few days, and though I didn’t fully understand the metaphors within, Vonnegut became my favorite author. By age 11 or 12, I had read most of his works. When I got a little older and reread them, it was quite a shock to find such new and powerful meaning, and many of his quotes still stick with me today. I don’t think these quotes need much explanation, or actually, I’m not quite sure how to explain them. To me, they embody what life is, both in the moment, and in retrospect.
