The Wisdom of Vonnegut


Right now I’m reading Kurt Vonnegut’s GALAPOGOS.  I found a couple of interesting lines:

“Like so man other pathological personalities in positions of power …he might do almost anything on impulse, feeling nothing much.  The logical explanations for his actions, invented at leisure, always came afterwards.”

“Like most pathological personalities, Andrew MacIntosh never cared much whether what he said was true or not–and so he was tremendously persuasive.”

Remind you of someone?
