That's one of the quotes we use in our film Father Electrico.


"Live Forever!"

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there."

- Ray Bradbury

While the following quote is not by Ray Bradbury, it reminded me of his great love for books and libraries:

"To learn to read is to light a fire, every syllable spelled out is a spark."

- Victor Hugo

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned it, but this is one of my favourites from Zen in the Art of Writing:

'Plot is no more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way to incredible destinations.'

This morning I watched, as I do most Saturday mornings, another disc in my DVD collection of the Looney Tunes - that wascally wabbit! Then, for good measure, I followed it with two Hal Roach shorts - an Our Gang and a Laurel & Hardy!
