Introducing Fahrenheit 451

I love introducing a classic piece of literature to someone for the very first time.  Especially when you are introducing an author like Ray Bradbury and a book like Fahrenheit 451.  I had wanted to offer my friend a little background but the fact that the book was published in 1953 was enough.  I did come upon some interesting quotes by him while in my journeys, however.  Some I remembered but a couple I had not heard before.

“No person ever died that had a family.”
― Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine

“The average TV commercial of sixty seconds has one hundred and twenty half-second clips in it, or one-third of a second. We bombard people with sensation. That substitutes for thinking.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“Write a short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.”
― Ray Bradbury
