Kurt Vonnegut, Music, Proof of God

“If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph: The only proof he needed for the existence of God was music.”

Kurt Vonnegut died on April 11.

The quote is from Man Without a Country, his last book, my favorite. The same thought appears in some of his earlier books.  Here’s a picture of a page from Man Without a Country:


He wrote many great books. My favorites are Slaughterhouse-Five, Cat’s Cradle, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater, Player Piano, and Welcome to the Monkey House.

Some of his quotes are put together into Confetti Prints, at

    I have never been smart enough to pick my teachers, yet, the right one; the one most needed was always there when I took the time to look.

    Never have I been more thoughtful, more introspective then after reading Kurt Vonnegut.

    I will appreciate and honor that man forever!
