“You’re a hopeless romantic,” said Faber. “It would be funny if it were not serious. Its not books you need, its some of the things that once were in books. The same things could be in the parlor families today. The same infinite detail and awareness could be projected through the radios, and televisors, but are not. No,no its not books at all you’re looking for! Take it where you can find it, in old phonograph records, old motion pictures, and in old friends; look for it in nature and look for it in yourself. Books were only one type or receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us. Of course you couldn’t know this, of course you still cant understand what I mean when i say all this. You are intuitively right, that’s what counts.”

— Ray Bradbury
