Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., 1922 - 2007

Slaughterhouse-Five:
I held up my right hand and I made her a promise.

'Mary,' I said, 'I don't think this book is ever going to be finished. I must have written five thousand pages by now, and thrown them all away. If I ever do finish it, though, I give you my word of honor: there won't be a part for Frank Sinatra or John Wayne.

'I tell you what,' I said, 'I'll call it The Children's Crusade.

She was my friend after that.
