Cribb Notes for Fahrenheit 451 – a few quotes to tell the tale (1)

“They want to know what I do with my time. I tell them that sometimes I just sit and think. But I won’t tell them what. I’ve got them running. And sometimes, I tell them, I like to put my head back, like this, and let the rain fall in my mouth. It tastes just like wine. Have you ever tried it?

“No, I-”

“You have forgiven me, haven’t you?”

“Yes.” He thought about it. “Yes, I have, God knows why. You’re peculiar, you’re aggravating, yet you’re easy to forgive. You say you’re seventeen?”

“Well-next month.”

“How odd. How strange. And my wife thirty and yet you seem so much older at times. I can’t get over it.”

Bradbury 1950
