RIP Kurt Vonnegut
Apparently he never gave that speech at MIT - the one about sunscreen. Which only leads me to wonder if he had ever been invited to speak at a graduation. I have no doubt that it would have been amazing.
But he did say this:
"What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured."
And a lot of other things.
Among my favorites is this:
"We are healthy only to the extent that our ideas are humane."
And in the silence he leaves behind, he will be missed.
