One of my favorite books of all time– ‘The Martian Chronicles‘.
It doesnt matter how many times I read it… The same stories, the same lines cause me to sob uncontrollably, from awe of humanitys potential, from mourning humanitys lost potential, from thinking about the great things we have achieved, from thinking about The End and how we will End It All…
One of my favorite lines, from anything, book/movie/song, anything:
“Garrett?” called Stendahl softly. Garrett silenced himself. “Garrett,” said Stendahl, “do you know why I’ve done this to you? Because you burned Mr. Poe’s books without really reading them. You took other people’s advice that they needed burning. Otherwise you’d have realized what I was going to do to you when we came down here a moment ago. Ignorance is fatal, Mr. Garrett.”
We will continue to fight the firemen, Ray, whether they are trying to burn books or burn blogs. Ignorance is fatal.
