Quotes by Sam Weller  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“We use certain authors at certain times of our lives, and we may never go back to them again.”
Sam Weller, Listen to the Echoes: The Ray Bradbury Interviews

“While he may not often curse, Ray Bradbury does cry. Often. Tears of joy. Tears of sorrow. He cries when watching the news; he cries when people say kind things to him; he cries when recalling fond memories. Sometimes he cries several times a day.”
Sam Weller, The Bradbury Chronicles: The Life of Ray Bradbury

“Indeed, he was a contradiction. Ray Bradbury was a nostalgic visionary: He predicted the past and remembered the future.”
Sam Weller, The Bradbury Chronicles: The Life of Ray Bradbury
