    Ray Bradbury: 1920-2012

    Some great words from the iconic author, on how literature is a necessary escape for the human mind, to keep us from coming apart:

    Literature is the Safety Valve of Civilization (via Open Culture):

    No matter what your profession in this world, you’re grabbing onto a piece of reality and interpreting it, and helping yourself and others to make do.”

    “We are the tension collecting animals of the world … every other animal acts in the instant to destroy, or run from destruction … we build walls, we build cities, and so inside these cities, inside these walls we need artists.”

    On harnessing what’s already inside you to feed your creativity, instead of forcing it:

    “You didn’t even know the story was in you, but you go with it.”

    More: Ray Bradbury’s timeless advice to writers in 2001 (via Brain Pickings)

    Ray Bradbury’s 1951 short story “The Rocket Man”, which will make you yearn to explore space even 61 years later.

    “if you can harness crazy, I’ll call you a genius.”
