And so it goes...

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (11 Nov 1922 - 11 Apr 2007)

Listen to the title character in his 1965 novel God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, or Pearls Before Swine:

“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.’”
