“I still believe that peace and plenty and happiness can be worked out some way. I am a fool.” — Kurt Vonnegut in Jailbird
My time in Europe is winding down and I am looking forward to a lazy July in Arkansas. Today I was Stumbling (of course) and I landed on a collection of quotes by Kurt Vonnegut, including the one above. I love Kurt Vonnegut and have for a long time. His personal philosophy, expressed in his interviews and his memoirs, fascinates me. I can find something to identify with in everything he said or published.
But I want to know – was he happy?
I’m going to investigate this question over the summer. Stay tuned.
