Be soft.

Do not let the world make you hard.

Do not let the pain make you hate.

Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.

My spiritual side needs nutrient dense food, too. This reminds me that I am more than the sum total of my physiological processes. Thank you.

I've been thinking of this quote since running into it yesterday. Just right for right now.

Yes on laughter. living with Mr Birdie is good for this. It's constant. But his joking is the kind you have to be with in person. Sometimes I've found my efforts to translate into written words don't work.

He sees a funny turn all over the place. :D

So, I told Mr B the first line of the Vonnegut quote. How can I explain the look in his eye? He is still laughing.

When/where did he say this? It is great.
