Kurt Vonnegut: In his own words

Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.

*

If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph:

THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED
FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
WAS MUSIC

*

A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.

*

Take Care of the People, and God Almighty Will Take Care of Himself.

*

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be. Sometimes misquoted as: Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be.

*

So it goes.
Recurring statement throughout the novel, based on what Tralfamadorians say whenever someone or something dies.

*

Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.

*

I still believe that peace and plenty and happiness can be worked out some way. I am a fool.

*

Kurt Vonnegut
