On Fahrenheit 451

"I've had fun all of my life. I've never worked a day in my life. I've done all these things, and then I go onto the next thing. Each one of my books is a special love. All these things are a reward for me now, and it's wonderful. But thank God I behaved unconsciously, and didn't try to intellectualize my career. Just me, the typewriter and the future."
Ray Bradbury

I never met the man, but I already miss him. Funny how writers can so profoundly influence the lives of so many. Thank you, Mr. Bradbury.
