A Quote by Ray Bradbury on god, errands, pray, esteem, suffering, silence, and forgotten

"Oh, ancient god, whatever your name," whispered Ahmed. "Help this lost son of a good father, this evil boy who meant no harm but slept in school, ran errands slowly, did not pray from his heart, ignored his mother, and did not hold his family in great esteem. For all this I know I must suffer. But here in the midst of silence, at the desert's heart, where even the wind knows not my name? Must I die so young? Am I to be forgotten without having been?"

A Quote by Ray Bradbury on carpe diem

Stuff your eyes with wonder, 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. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. ...To hell with that!

A Quote by Ray Bradbury

"'I hate a roman named Status Que!' he said to me. 'stuff your eye 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. Ask no guarentees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day everyday, sleeping its life away. To hell with that,' he said, 'shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.'"

A Quote by Ray Bradbury

We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?

A Quote by Ray Bradbury on books

in

There must be something in books,  things we can't imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don't stay for nothing.

A Quote by Ray Bradbury on faith, life, and music

If you stuff yourself full of poems, essays, plays, stories, novels, films, comic strips, magazines, music, you automatically explode every morning like old faithful. I have never had a dry spell in my life, mainly because I feed myself well, to the point of bursting. I wake early and hear my morning voices leaping around in my head like jumping beans. I get out of bed to trap them before they escape.
