There must be something in books, things we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.
—Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury (via stannisbaratheon)
It’s not books at all you’re looking for! Take it where you can find it, in old phonograph records, old motion pictures, and in old friends; look for it in nature and look for it in yourself. 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 they say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together in one garment for us.
—Ray Bradbury - Fahrenheit 451 (via the3rd-planet)
