How Jane Vonnegut Made Kurt Vonnegut a Writer - The New Yorker
Once married, the pair began figuring out how to run that nation, which was to be, they decided, a nation of love, arts, common decency, and peace. Jane drafted a household constitution: “We cannot and will not live in and be hogtied by a society which not only has not faith in the things we have faith in, but which reviles and damns that faith with practically every breath it draws.”


The next week, in a calmer mood, he articulated his new conviction. “Rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief? Doctor, Lawyer, Merchant, Chief?” he wrote, reprising his old theme. “From your loving me I’ve drawn a measure of courage that never would have come to me otherwise. You’ve given me the courage to decide to be a writer. That much of my life has been decided. Regardless of my epitaph, to be a writer will have been my personal ultimate goal.”

Straight A student commits suicide over O-level results, mum takes her own life months later | The New Paper
"In January, just three hours after getting her results slip, her granddaughter jumped to her death. Except for two Bs - in English and Mathematics - the student had scored distinctions for her other subject.
The only child left a note for her parents: "Mum, I am sorry for being a disappointment. I should have done better.
The child's parents used to fight over their daughter's education. The girl had been a straight-As student who attended a top school.
The mum wanted to push her to excel and her dad felt that the child should be left alone."
