[As To Your Newton, I Confess I Do Not Understand His Void And His Gravity; I Admit He Has Demonstrated The Movement Of The Heavenly Bodies With More Exactitude Than His Forerunners; But You Will Admit It Is An Absurdity To Maintain The Existence Of Nothing.[Letter To Voltaire, 25 Nov. 1777]]

Quotes About Taken Crush

"Literature, real literature, must not be gulped down like some potion which may be good for the heart or good for the brain—the brain, that stomach of the soul. Literature must be taken and broken to bits, pulled apart, squashed—then its lovely reek will be smelt in the hollow of the palm, it will be munched and rolled upon the tongue with relish; then, and only then, its rare flavor will be appreciated at its true worth and the broken and crushed parts will again come together in your mind and disclose the beauty of a unity to which you have contributed something of your own blood." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Quotes About Being An Executor

"And wasnt it this bright boy you selected for beating and tortures after hours? Of course it was. We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of every other; then all are happy, for their are no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against. So! A book is a loaded gun in the house next door. Burn it. Take the shot from the weapon. Breach mans mind. Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man? Me? I wont stomach them for a minute. And so when houses were finally fireproofed completely, all over the world (you were correct in your assumption the other night) there was no longer need of firemen for the old purposes. They were given the new job, as custodians of our peace of mind, the focus of our understandable and rightful dread of being inferior: official censors, judges and executors. Thats you, Montag, and thats me." - Author: Ray Bradbury
