Kurt Vonnegut

And Lot’s 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. So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes. People aren’t supposed to look back. I’m certainly not going to do it anymore. ― Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five. (Delacorte 1969)a
