A Journalist's Duty

I have developed an unshakable hatred of every 'fact' that circulates Facebook, and an undying love of snopes.com.

My latest quirk is uncontrollable fits of quote-verifying. Every time I see a pretty graphic with a quote overlaid, I -have- to verify that quote's source.

My latest temper-tantrum is over this quote, which near as I can tell is falsely attributed to Kurt Vonnegut:

 Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place... 

If anyone anyone anyone can find where this quote originated, please let me know. Thanks!

UPDATE: Mystery solved! See my blog post on the solution.
