“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
