Does anyone know who says this quote? “What is it about fire that's so lovely? No matter what age we are, what draws us to it?...The thing man wanted to invent, but never did...If you let it go on, it'd burn our lifetimes out. What is fire? It is a mystery. Scientists give us gobbledygook about friction and molecules. But they don't really know. Its real beauty is that it destroys responsibility and consequences.”
Carol Crowley It was Beatty talking to Montag in part three. SPOILER (sort of): as Beatty was burning something.
