kurt vonnegut jr.

the epitaph on the tombstone of his fictionalized character kilgore trout read, “life is no way to treat an animal.”

in my opinion, this statement showcases his sardonic humour and cutting insight better than any other. his tireless advocacy of rationality and equality has left an invaluable fingerprint on american literature that cannot soon be overlooked.
