The only thing (Vonnegut)

The mind is the only thing about human beings that’s worth anything.  Why does it have to be tied to a bag of skin, blood, hair, meat, bones and tubes?

No wonder people can’t get anything done, stuck for life with a parasite that has to be stuffed with food and protected from weather and germs all the time.  And the fool thing wears out anyway—no matter how much you stuff and protect it.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr., from Unready To Wear
