It took me about 20 years to read Rick Moody's THE ICE STORM (I'm a huge fan of the Ang Lee film) and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the 1973 world of New Canaan, Connecticut that Moody reported on, all of the souls living there desperate for some ki ...more

“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
Ray Bradbury

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.”
Ray Bradbury

“We're going to meet a lot of lonely people in the next week and the next month and the next year. And when they ask us what we're doing, you can say, We're remembering. That's where we'll win out in the long run. And someday we'll remember so much that we'll build the biggest goddamn steamshovel in history and dig the biggest grave of all time and shove war in it and cover it up.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
