Ray Bradbury quotes :
Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn't exist yet, but soon will, and will change everything for everybody, and nothing will ever be the same again. As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible, never the impossible.Ray Bradbury
The best scientist is open to experience and begins with romance - the idea that anything is possible.Ray Bradbury
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.Ray Bradbury
If you dream the proper dreams, and share the myths with people, they will want to grow up to be like you.Ray Bradbury
I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it's better than college. People should educate themselves - you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I'd written a thousand stories.Ray Bradbury
If you know how to read, you have a complete education about life, then you know how to vote within a democracy. But if you don't know how to read, you don't know how to decide. That's the great thing about our country - we're a democracy of readers, and we should keep it that way.Ray Bradbury
My religion encompasses all religions. I believe in God, I believe in the universe. I believe you are god, I believe I am god I believe the earth is god and the universe is god. We're all god.Ray Bradbury
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.Ray Bradbury
There is too much government today. We've got to remember the government should be by the people, of the people, and for the people.Ray Bradbury
A book has got smell. A new book smells great. An old book smells even better. An old book smells like ancient Egypt.Ray Bradbury
I have total recall. I remember being born. I remember being in the womb, I remember being inside. Coming out was great.Ray Bradbury
The great fun in my life has been getting up every morning and rushing to the typewriter because some new idea has hit me.Ray Bradbury
