Kurt Vonnegut has become unstuck in time. So it goes.

“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and
cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded.
At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here.
There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it,
you’ve got to be kind.’ ”

from “God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater”, 1965

"I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over.
Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center. "

-Kurt Vonnegut
