Quote by Ray Bradbury

"You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them."
--Ray Bradbury

I love this quote because it is by Ray Bradbury, a man who wrote an entire book about a culture destroyed by burning books. But he makes a good point. All you have to do to destroy a culture is get people to stop reading books. I know many people who do not read, and it saddens me. I think there is so much we can learn and understand about people, values, truth, love, justice, and more when we read. Those who are not reading are missing something out on something vital, something better.

Begin where you are today. Pick a book that challenges you, and read it.
