What a badass.
I want every child to read this letter. It has such an important message: Create, create, create. Fail, fail, fail—and maybe succeed. Don’t do it for anyone but yourself. Become and learn what’s inside you, and you will make your soul grow.
A reader comment: “Years ago, in the mid-80s, when I was in high school, a friend and I were amusing ourselves by calling directory assistance and asking for phone numbers of famous people. It was surprising how many numbers we got, just for asking. But when we dialed most of them, we just got answering services or some secretary or something who shut us down pretty quick. But when we called Kurt Vonnegut… He answered! And actually talked to us for quite a while, about his books, becoming a writer, anything else we asked about. He was astoundingly nice and wise. I’ll never forget that. A real gentleman.”
“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut
