Five quotes by Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007) was an American writer and humorist known for his satirical and darkly humorous novels. He published 14 novels, three short-story collections, five plays, and five nonfiction works over fifty-plus years; further collections have been published since his death.
Vonnegut published his first novel, Player Piano, in 1952. It received positive reviews yet sold poorly. In the nearly 20 years that followed, he published several well regarded novels including two—The Sirens of Titan (1959) and Cat’s Cradle (1963)—that were nominated for the Hugo Award for best science fiction or fantasy novel of the year. Vonnegut’s breakthrough was his commercially and critically successful sixth novel, Slaughterhouse-Five (1969).
 A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved. 
 Every passing hour brings the Solar System forty-three thousand miles closer to Globular Cluster M13 in Hercules—and still there are some misfits who insist that there is no such thing as progress. 
 Make love when you can; it's good for you. 
 Take life seriously but none of the people in it. 
 We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.
