“I don’t believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.” #QotD

  1. Being a redneck slob I don't read so much, so I had never heard of Bradbury, except for that vile socialist Martyn. But the site reference to Vinay Kolkhatkar was interesting indeed, I was a little suspicious except that I am suspicious about that name Kolhatkar > it's OK passed the race test, some good stuff about social engineering over there.

  2. The quote makes sense given Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.

    To make this more modern in today's day and age, I would say that I believe in the internet. We have all of the information the world has to offer tucked away in our pockets yet we use it to take selfies and send cat videos to our friends.
