Kurt Vonnegut On Enough

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.Kurt Vonnegut (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007)

Joseph Heller, an important and funny writer now dead, and I were at a party given by a billionaire on Shelter Island. 

I said, “Joe, how does it make you feel to know that our host only yesterday may have made more money than your novel ‘Catch-22’ has earned in its entire history?”

And Joe said, “I’ve got something he can never have.”

And I said, “What on earth could that be, Joe?”

And Joe said, “The knowledge that I’ve got enough.”

Not bad! Rest in peace!
