A Conversation with Ray Bradbury

My favorite quote from the video below.

We should learn from history about the destruction of books. When I was fifteen years old, Hitler burned books in the streets of Berlin. So I learned then how dangerous it all was because if you didn’t have books and the ability to read, then you could not be part of any civilization. You couldn’t be part of a democracy. If you know how to read and you have a complete education about life, then you know how to vote in a democracy. If you do not know how to read, then you do not know how to decide. That is the great thing about our country: we are a democracy of readers and we should keep it that way.

I got here from reading a quote:

Imagination should be the center of your life… Stand at the top of a cliff and jump off and build your wings on the way down.

If the above video does not work, then try A Conversation with Ray Bradbury
