Granger stood, looking back with Montag, ". . .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. . ." Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

(Quote transcribed from the CAEDMON audiobook of Fahrenheit 451, read by Ray Bradbury, CD #5 - section 5) 

Remembering Ray Bradbury: 1920 - June 5,  2012
Every time I read Ray Bradbury's, Fahrenheit 451 or experience François Truffaut's film adaptation of the book, I'm reminded of my humanity. . . it is an inextinguishable story about a very mortal subject. 

Don't you agree?...Hmmm.
