“Somewhere the saving and putting away had to begin again and someone had to do the saving and keeping, one way or another, in books, in records, in people’s heads, any way at all so long as it was safe, free from moths, silver-fish, rust and dry-rot, and men with matches.” - Fahrenheit 451
Today’s quote is in honor of Ray Bradbury, who passed away this morning at the age of 91. This is one of my favorite books and this quote represents his writing talent well, one that enamored and enthralled his fans. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should also check out the film by François Truffaut.
