Quote Sunday

Todays quote comes from Vonnegut, specifically Slaughterhouse-five.
"He had supposed for years that he had no secrets from himself. Here was proof that he had a great big secret somewhere inside, and he could not imagine what it was."
I like this so much because its funny. It makes me laugh. But it also feels remarkably familiar. like when something happens and it feels like being punched in the gut, that feeling of oh, I wasn't expecting that and I'm surprised it hurt that much. I think that's what it feels like to discover a well-buried inner secret.
