Ray Bradbury Is My Kind of Guy

Writing reminds us that we are alive, and that it is a gift and a privilege, not a right.

Life will happen to us all. There will be disappointments and setbacks; there will be times when we feel the universe has lost all sense.

If I were asked to name the most important items in a writer’s make-up, I could only warn him to look to his zest, see to his gusto.

Ray Bradbury is undoubtedly a unique individual.

What do you love most in the world?

This question has inspired me the most sincerely of all.

To fail is to give up. But you are in the midst of a moving process. Nothing fails then. All goes on.

There will always be setbacks, times when we believe we haven’t given our best, that we weren’t true to our character, or that we messed up.

The writer who wants to tap the larger truth in himself must forget the money waiting for him in mass-circulation.

I believe this relates to anything meaningful we want out of life. Bradbury writes that if we create for the money, it will be evident in our work.

Go to Zen for the answer to your problems.

The word Zen can be associated with Buddhism and meditation, deep introspection, and insight into the nature of things.
