  1. The quote that I choose is where Bradbury inspires us to,” Stuff your eyes with wonder, as if you were going to die in ten seconds.” It reminds us that our time is short, and we need to use our time wisely. ” Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16. The times were living in are getting darker, so it is best to be prepared for the LORDS coming.

  2. I chose the quote,”We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important. About something real?” Nowadays people seem to be living through the internet more than their own selves. They think that their virtual friends are the most important things to them, but there is something so special about talking to someone face to face. What we find on our computers and phones may seem fun and entertaining, but much of the stuff is really useless and means nothing. It’s all just a time waster. It keeps you away from your family, friends, and God. It keeps you from the joy of living. We need to remember to look up and see that technology is nothing compared to the true, natural beauty right before our eyes.

  3. The quote that I chose was “You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.” This quote tells us that books are important, and that without books, a culture would be destroyed. And Ray Bradbury shows us in his book, that if you distract people with unimportant things, you can take away people’s desire to read books.

  4. “We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important. About something real?”

    I chose this quote because it can pertain to what has been happening in our world lately. With all the bombings, terrorist attacks, and shootings, people have honestly become numbed to the emotion we would get if we were truly saddened by what had happened. We need to be bothered about this stuff, it is important!

  5. “It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away.”

    I cannot stress it enough the importance this quote holds. We have the power to change the world, to really make a difference, to actually leave our mark on the world. But do some of us actually want to change the world, or do we just want to leave it and put a blanket over all of the sadness and hurt that goes on? We as Christians have the cure to give to a world that has a sickness, and that is Jesus. However some of us choose to do nothing with it. We choose to sit back and be witnesses to all the chaos, accepting whatever is going on. We think that we don’t have the power to change anything, that whatever we choose to do, if we even do anything about it, will change nothing. But we are only fooling ourselves, we have the power to change the world. We can make a difference.

  6. I picked the first one because it’s true you don’t need to destroy a culture you just need to get people to stop reading themy because if everybody just stops reading the they become ultimately useless and worthless no more wisdom knowledge or well anything can come from them anymore
