banned books week – vonnegut edition

It's true.

It's true.

“If what Billy Pilgrim learned from the Tralfamadorians is true, that we will all live forever, no matter how dead we may sometimes seem to be, I am not overjoyed. Still–if I am going to spend eternity visiting this moment and that, I’m grateful that so many of those moments are nice.”

-from Slaughterhouse Five, #29 on ALA’s Challenged Classics list.

“No wonder kids grow up crazy. A cat’s cradle is nothing but a bunch of X’s between somebody’s hands, and little kids look and look and look at all those X’s…”
“And?”
“No damn cat, and no damn cradle.”

-from Cat’s Cradle, #66 on ALA’s Challenged Classics list.
