Zitat des Tages von Ray Bradbury:
The best scientist is open to experience and begins with romance - the idea that anything is possible.
We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into imagination and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms. You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.
Video games are a waste of time for men with nothing else to do. Real brains don't do that.
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.
In Hollywood, they think they know it all. You, as a writer, are essentially an outsider. Novelists and short-story writers, especially.
If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
I have total recall. I remember being born. I remember being in the womb, I remember being inside. Coming out was great.
Everything is my demon muse. I have a muse which whispers in my ear and says, 'Do this, do that,' but it's my demon who provokes me.
We have too many cellphones. We've got too many internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.
You fail only if you stop writing.
Bo Derek is a really good friend of mine, and I'd like to spend more time with her.
We are anthill men upon an anthill world.
If you enjoy living, it is not difficult to keep the sense of wonder.
Americans are far more remarkable than we give ourselves credit for. We've been so busy damning ourselves for years. We've done it all, and yet we don't take credit for it.
All of my writing is God-given.
I felt a bit bookish, cut off from life.
I've been afraid of people playing their life away with too many toys.
Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting the pieces together.
Libraries raised me.
Love is easy, and I love writing. You can't resist love. You get an idea, someone says something, and you're in love.
Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.
Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall.
My goal is to entertain myself and others.
I believe in libraries because most students don't have any money.
You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
You can't try to do things; you simply must do them.
We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.
We are an impossibility in an impossible universe.
I know you've heard it a thousand times before. But it's true - hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don't love something, then don't do it.
I couldn't go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.
Millions of students now, in all the schools of America, are reading science fiction and especially, thank God, 'The Martian Chronicles.'
If you don't like what you're doing, then don't do it.
If you dream the proper dreams, and share the myths with people, they will want to grow up to be like you.
Love is the answer to everything. It's the only reason to do anything. If you don't write stories you love, you'll never make it. If you don't write stories that other people love, you'll never make it.
When I was born in 1920, the auto was only 20 years old. Radio didn't exist. TV didn't exist. I was born at just the right time to write about all of these things.
Touch a scientist and you touch a child.
