Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury with datesRay Bradbury’s Zen in the Art of Writing arrived in the mail today.  As usual, I opened the book at random. Page 108 is   before the section heading “The Secret Mind.”

“And then from the halls of my Museum of Robots, in the long dusk, let Plato have the last word from the midst of his electro-machine-computerized Republic:

“Go, children. Run and read. Read and run. Show and tell. Spin another pyramid on its nose. Turn another world upside-down. Knock the soot off my brain. Repaint the Sistine Chapel inside my skull. Laugh and think. Dream and learn and build.”

“Run, boys! Run, girls! Run!”

And with such good advice, the kids will run.

And the Republic will be saved.” 1980
