Ray Bradbury

1920 - 2012 

Over the years, I used to have breakfast with Ray at The Marriott in San Diego during Comic-Con. He will be missed.

Ray is credited with saying these things: 

"And what, you ask, does writing teach us? First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is gift and a privilege, not a right... So while our art cannot, as we wish it could, save us from wars, privation, envy, greed, old age, or death, it can revitalize us amidst it all." 

"There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them."

"I have three rules to live by. One, get your work done. If that doesn't work, shut up and drink your gin. And when all else fails, run like hell!"
