[Error: unknown template qotd] There are several (I could never choose just one, sorry), this is my first inspired by mr [livejournal.com profile] why_a_duck, which is also Vonnegut and from Cat's Cradle. Everyone says 'So it goes' but mine is longer:

"If I was a younger man, I would write a history of human stupidity; and I would climb to the top of Mount McCabe and lie down on my back with my history for a pillow; and I would take from the ground some of the blue-white poison that makes statues of men; and I would make a statue of myself, lying on my back, grinning horribly, and thumbing my nose at You Know Who."

Why? Well it states what I feel about religion and humanity, in one easy run-on sentence.

The others are:

Charles Ives - "In 'thinking up' music I usually have some kind of a brass band with wings on it in back of my mind." - this used to be my LJ heading, and sums up my approach to music, ie take the normal and give it wings.

Socrates - "I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance." - because contrary to the impression I might give sometimes this is always true, the search for and destruction of knowledge continues

Marvin the Paranoid Android - "Life, don't talk to me about life, loathe it or ignore it, you can't like it" from the mighty Douglas Adams, it's a personal motto of mine and I incant it everyday.
