The words of Ray Bradbury live long in the imaginations of all who read his works, such as Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles, many of which were inspired by his own nightmares as a child.
His goal of writing at least 1000 words every day for the last seventy years meant the author himself was often surprised to read himself in print and he noted in 2000 that,
“I sometimes get up at night when I can’t sleep and walk down into my library and open one of my books and read a paragraph and say: ‘My God, did I write that? Did I write that?’ Because it’s still a surprise.”
What better way, then, to honor one of the sci-fi/fantasy greats than with snippets of his own wisdom, which is exactly what the Guardian has done in cooperation with The Atlantic and Twitter.
