Kurt Vonnegut

I confess that before reading Bernie’s blog this morning, I had never heard of Kurt Vonnegut, recently deceased. However, upon reading some of the quotes provided, I wish I had and will most likely rectify the situation as soon as I can track down his material. While I cannot yet claim any impact of his works on me, one quote that Bernie used will probably stay with me forever:

“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.”

  1. I wish I had my Vonnegut books with me as I’d give them to you to read. If nothing else, read Slaughterhouse 5. The rest are brilliant too.

    Required reading for… well… everyone 🙂
