We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the constitution says, but everyone made equal. A book is a loaded gun in the house next door. Burn it. Take the shot from the weapon. Breach man’s mind."
- Captain Beatty
"Do you know why books such as this are so important? Because they have quality. And what does the word quality mean? To me it means texture. This book has pores."
- Professor Faber
Here you can post thoughts on Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury's "dystopian" picture of a dumbed-down future America. You can share any quotations, scenes, images or themes that stand out to you, or make connections to real-life events and trends. There will be posts for each book; you're required to discuss two, and at least one of your posts needs to be a good-sized paragraph so I can get a sense of how you think and write. Go to "Leave a Reply" below when you're ready to post, but make sure you read what your classmates have already said. You don't want to just repeat one of their points, but you can always build off their ideas. Best of luck! The two key quotes above might help you get started. - Mr. Biggs
