Quote of The Week

"Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be."
-Kurt Vonnegut (1922 - 2007)

This follows nicely on my last Quote. Very similar, perhaps more precise and with a slightly different emphasis.

I love Vonnegut. I had the chance to hear him speak in Oklahoma City a few years back and I still draw on some of the wisdom he shared on that evening.

Wow, I'd love to hear him. That would be so cool. He's definitely an interesting dude.

or you are likely to "become" what you pretend. Sometimes that may be good.

Leaving pretend life to fiction works better when you don't let it seep into reality, especially if your characters are killers. :)

Virginia Lady said...

Good point, Charles, it can be helpful in situations you are trying to grow into as an example.

That would be very disturbing, Bernard. Sends chills down my spine just thinking about it. :-)
