In 1974, Kurt Vonnegut had this to say as a commencement speaker at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York:

“What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured. Young people should also identify and expound theories about life in which sane human beings almost everywhere can believe.”
