Kurt Vonnegut:

"If you really want to hurt your parents, and you don't have the nerve to be a homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. But do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites, standing for absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college."

You know what else shows you've been to college? Quoting Kurt Vonnegut.

Hah! This is absolutely my favorite quote of all time. I reference it whenever I'm asked what I intend to do with the English degree I'm pursuing.

You could always save the tuition costs and just buy a T-shirt at vonnegut.com for $28.

Though I am familiar with his works, I do not often quote Vonnegut; community college chicks don't dig him like you'd think.
