In the novel, Vonnegut says, "Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything." From this assertion, one can infer that a who person who believes that age will bring wisdom is in for big let down. We all seem to believe that at some point, answers will be provided...if we just live long enough, eternal questions will be resolved. Those of us who are...lucky...age, yet those answers remain elusive. What can you do, except laugh at your own foolishness?
