“Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn’t exist yet, but soon will, and will change everything for everybody, and nothing will ever be the same again. As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible, never the impossible.” (Ray Bradbury)


“Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall.” (Ray Bradbury)


“I discovered me in the library. I went to find me in the library.” (Ray Bradbury)

“If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.” (Ray Bradbury)
