be kind


Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's wet and round and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies - you've got to be kind.

Kurt Vonnegut

Is there ever really a good reason to be other than kind?

Not so much.

Beautiful. Not what I would expect from Vonnegut, and simply beautiful. Thank you.

No, not so much.

Only when my fear and ego get in the way.

We have a sign posted at the entrance to our family room that says, "Be Nice or Leave." Works for us!
