Human Flaws

My dear,

The human character is filled with countless flaws. A good number of them are recognized, but most are unnoticed. One of them being our need for perfection.

Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance.

Everybody wants to create something great, something awe-inspiring… something that’ll give them a hell of a lot of attention. But nobody wants to do maintenance. Nobody wants to make sure that that great thing still exists in our grand-children’s time.

Greatness requires upkeep. But as I said, we are flawed, for we do not recognize this.

Falsely yours,
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
