Objective Proficiency p 138. Ray Bradbury: “The Things That You Love Should Be Things That You Do.” “Books Teach Us That” Extra Listenig
Ray Bradbury–author of Fahrenheit 451, The Illustrated Man, The Martian Chronicles, and several dozen more fantasy and sci-fi novels and short story collections begins talking about love. Specifically a love of books. “Love,” he says, “is at the center of your life. The things that you do should be things that you love, and the things that you love, should be things that you do.” That’s what books teach us, he says, and it becomes his mantra.
