Kurt Vonnegut: So It Goes

You've probably heard that Kurt Vonnegut died yesterday. Here's one of my favorite Vonnegut quotes:
We have discovered that writing allows even
a stupid person to seem halfway intelligent, if
only that person will write the same thought
over and over again, improving it just a little
bit each time. It is a lot like inflating a blimp
with a bicycle pump. Anybody can do it. All it
takes is time. (From Palm Sunday)
