My dear,

My soul knows my meat is doing bad things, and is embarrassed. But my meat just keeps right on doing bad, dumb things.

Wait a minute… I think this is what it means to be human!

To constantly live with the forces of good and bad fighting within you. To constantly know that you can do so much better than you are right now. To know you speak good, yet do bad. To know you’re being a hypocrite. And to keep on going, even after all this is known.

And to maybe, just maybe, be a hypocrite in the right way – to do good, while your thoughts are less than so.

Falsely yours,
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
