A book has got smell. A new book smells great. An old book smells even better. An old book smells like ancient Egypt.
More 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
