the last book I ever read (Cat's Cradle, excerpt four)
from Kurt Vonnegut's
"How do you think the people of San Lorenzo would take to industrialization?" I asked the Castles, father and son.
"The people of San Lorenzo," the father told me, "are interested in only three things: fishing, fornication, and Bokononism."
"Don't you think they could be interested in progress?"
"They've seen some of it. There's only one aspect of progress that really excites them."
"The electric guitar."
