Every story ever told

You will see this story over and over again. People love it and it is not copyrighted. The story is “Man in a Hole,” but the story needn’t be about a man or a hole. It’s: Somebody gets into trouble, and gets out of it again. It’s not accidental that the line ends up higher than where it began. This is encouraging to readers.

–Kurt Vonnegut, “Man Without a Country”
