God bless you, Mr. Vonnegut

What made marriage so difficult back then was yet again that instigator of so many other sorts of heartbreak: the oversize brain. That cumbersome computer could hold so many contradictory opinions on so many different subjects all at once, and switch from one opinion or subject to another one so quickly, that a discussion between a husband and wife under stress could end up like a fight between blindfolded people wearing roller skates.

-Kurt Vonnegut, Galápagos

Side note: When I bought this novel from the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, the curator informed me that it is his “second favorite Vonnegut book from the 80s.” Talk about specificity.
