Ray Bradbury...


 You transported us to other worlds and made us think - and we thank you.

Fahrenheit 451 is one of my all time favorite books.

 "If you are writing without zest, without gusto, without love, without fun, you are only half a writer.  It means you are so busy keeping one eye on the commercial market, or one ear peeled for the avant-garde coterie, that you are not being yourself.  You don't even know yourself.  For the first thing a writer should be is --- excited.  He should be a thing of fevers and enthusiasms.  Without such vigor, he might as well be out picking peaches or digging ditches; God knows it'd be better for his health."   Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
