A Vonnegut “Note to Self.”

vonnegutJanuary 25, 1994

My experiences at Cornell were freakish in the extreme, as have been most of those which followed, mostly accidents. So the advice I give myself at the age of 71 is the best advice I could have given myself in 1940, when detraining for the first time at Ithaca, having come all the way from Indianapolis: “Keep your hat on. We may wind up miles from here.”
