The arts…are a very human way of making life more bearable (Kurt Vonnegut)

Posted on: May 30, 2016

I cut some of the beginning of this original quote to get to the heart of it. But it’s got a great heart:

“The arts…are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”

― Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country
