There are two things that Kurt Vonnegut says in Timequake that I would like to repeat for you here. The first he says several times, and it's funny because it's true:
"All men are jerks, and all women are psychotic."
And the second he only says once, near the end, and I noticed it because of my current situation:
"Listen: We are here on Earth to fart around. Don't let anybody tell you any different!"
If you need a book to read and trust my judgement, may I suggest some Vonnegut. Perhaps Bluebeard or Galapagos or Breakfast of Champions or Slaughter-House Five; Timequake is not a novel so much as Kurt just talking about stuff, and it's difficult to appreciate, I think, unless you already have great affection for the man and what he has to say.
