Heartwarming / Slaughterhouse-Five

  • Kurt Vonnegut's interpretation of Lot's Wife, believing she disobeyed God and looked back upon Sodom and Gomorrah out of human concern for the people being killed. Considering that the people who lived there were said to be the worst of the worst that not even Lot could find any righteous men, this is especially touching.
    "And Lotís wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human.Ē
  • Kurt Vonnegut instructing his sons not to participate in massacres, create instruments to cause massacres, or take pleasure in massacres even those of their enemies.
  • Billy Pilgrim's interpretation of a WWII documentary in reverse - every country working together to repair bombed cities and taking apart said bombs and hiding each part so that no one would make bombs to hurt people ever again.
