In honor of the William Saroyan House Museum's official request to use the original, unedited Saroyan quote, an Ara the Rat designed, updated poster is available to download and print (for personal use) as a PDF file below.

The famous misquoted version that many Armenians know by heart began in 1982 when a diasporan Armenian created posters with the heavily edited, sanitized text, presumedly to make it more family-friendly. Unfortunately this version leaves out William Saroyan’s true bold and exuberant writing style, which became known as “Saroyanesque.”
