Quote of the Week: Ray Bradbury (yes, again)

r bradburyThe quote of the week comes from the book Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury. I really enjoyed this book and plan to post a review of it for those that are interested.

“And what, you ask, does writing teach us?

First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is a gift and a privilege, not a right. We must earn life once it has been awarded us. Life asks for rewards back because it has favored us with animation.

So while our art cannot, as we wish it could, save us from wars, privation, envy, greed, old age, or death, it can revitalize us amidst it all.”
