Quotations That Illustrate the Value of BooksI need six quotes that show the value of the books to life in the novel "Fahrenheit 451". Thank you in advance!
How about these:
"What traitors books can be! You think they're backing you up, and they turn on you. Others can use them, too, and there you are, lost in the middle of the moor, in a great welter of nouns and verbs and adjectives." (Montag)
can anyone explain why knowledge is power in fahrenheit 451 in a deeper meaning please please please????
"Don't judge a book by its cover." (Irony and an old cliche)
"Books were only one type of receptacle where we started a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. THere is nothing magical about them at all. The magic is only with what books say, how they stiched the patches of the universe together into one garment."
"His hands had been infected, and soon it would be his arms...His hands were ravenous." (Emphasizing the desire to read and discover.)
"What traitors books can be! You think they're backing you up, and they turn on you." (Again, knowledge is power and in Farenheit 451, everyone has limited knowledge and power.)
"Do you ever read any of the books you burn?" (Triggers Montag's curiosity.)
"'There must be something in books, things we can't imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don't stay for nothing.'"
