In this post, we are going to explain a quote by Kurt Vonnegut which says: “True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.”
Thoughts on this quote.
If you don’t want to wake up one morning to discover your high school class running the world, then you just have to work hard to keep pace with them.
Undergoing or attaining the same educational level or status as someone else does not guarantee you possess the key to becoming successful in life.
But what does is the hard work that will usher in the needed success and keep it.
Going by what Kurt Vonnegut says about true terror, if you allow your schoolmates to become successful, they are surely going to make you a source of ridicule.
Some of them will even be afraid to associate with you, or worst still even stop by to exchange conversations.
It’s awful to wake up and realize that popularity supersedes intelligence.
How’d you feel to wake up and find that the world is still childishly cruel?
And worst again find that days, weeks, months, and years have done nothing to better the human race.
True terror is to wake up one morning and realize that the fools are running the world, and those fools are the same people you attended school with.
