It’s a world where firemen start fires rather than stop them. It’s a world where books are banned(after all, they hold bad ideas). It’s a world where people do not spend time alone, or take pleasure in the outdoors. Most importantly, it’s a world where people do not think independently and the burning point of paper is 451 degrees.

❝ We are all bits and pieces of history and literature and international law, Byron, Tom Paine, Machiavelli or Christ, it’s here. And the hour’s late. And the war’s begun. And we are out here, and the city is there, all wrapped up in its own coat of a thousand colors. ❞
Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury

“It was a pleasure to burn”

❝ Books were only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us. ❞
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 (via bookmania)

❝ You’re not like the others. I’ve seen a few; I know. When I talk, you look at me. When I said something about the moon, you looked at the moon, last night. The others would never do that. The others would walk off and leave me talking. Or threaten me. No one has time anymore for anyone else. You’re one of the few who put up with me. ❞
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 (via smcqq)
