“Don’t worry about things. Don’t push. Just do your work and you’ll survive. The important thing is to have a ball, to be joyful, to be loving and to be explosive. Out of that comes everything and you grow.”

“All of the good, weird stories I’ve written are based on things I’ve dredged out of my subconscious. That’s the real stuff. Everything else is fake.”

“Let the world burn through you. Throw the prism light, white hot, on paper.”

“I don’t believe in being serious about anything. I think life is too serious to be taken seriously.”

One thought on “Ray Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012)

  1. Lovely post B-Ray on a lovely man. I read in The New Yorker that as a child he waved to the red light of Mars, wishing to travel there. His article was just in last week’s issue. Ray Bradbury spoke of those worlds calling him home; it made me happy to think that maybe he is in the Heavens having a great time. He certainly will be with so many adventurous, good people who love to visit him often in his books.
