RIP – Ray Bradbury, Author of “Fahrenheit 451”

Today marked the passing of Ray Bradbury, acclaimed sci-fi author, best known for his dystopian novel, “Fahrenheit 451”. He was 91 years old.

There is no better way to summarize the man’s life than through his own words. For a long interview, via the NEA, see below. (This is honestly worth the time – a charming interview with a man who just wants us to love our lives just a little bit more)

“The things that you do should be things that you love, and the things that you love should be the things that you do”

PS: If you only have ten seconds, I urge you to check out the line at 5:04 – this could be an epitaph all on its own.
