Book Quote: Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut


"It was and remains easy for most Americans to go somewhere else to start anew. I wasn't like my parents. I didn't have any supposedly sacred piece of land or shoals of friends and relatives to leave behind. Nowhere has the number zero been more of philosophical value than in the United States." - Rabo Karabekian

is there a quote in this book that goes something like

"all great [something] starts with genocide"?

if so, could you quote it for me and tell me the page number? thanks.

As far as I know, there isn't a quote like that in the book, although I will admit that I could be wrong. Even if I'm right, it definitely sounds like something that you might find in a Vonnegut novel. Sorry I couldn't help you out, Rabo.
