- John F. Kennedy once said, ” Conformity is jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” This quote relates directly to the novel Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury.

- “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute, we read and write poetry because we are members of the human race and the human race is full of passion.” Mr. Keating said this to try to get his class to look beyond writing poems because the teacher told them to and because that is what they have done for years.
- Aldous Huxley also uses the concept of society out of control in his science fiction novel Brave New World. Brave new world also deals with man in a changed society.

- Montag’s job as a fireman serves as a setting to show how many people passively accept the absurdity of their society. Instead of rushing to put out fires, as firemen today do, Montag rushes to start fires, burning the books and homes of people reported to have books.

- Fire is a symbol of many things in this story. It symbolizes hate because of the way fire is used to burn the books. These books were once loved but are now hated because they are being burned.

- 2) An idea that interested me was Captain Beatty’s ignorance. He had no doubt about this world of book burning and he even spread his beliefs by sharing them with Guy Montage. He put the idea in Montage’s head that books made people smart and they didn’t need smart people in the world.
- All great things that have been created by mankind have evolved from individuals who dare to think outside of the box. There are the regretful ideas from which we learn from and of course the great ideas in which humanity has developed. For us to grow and change, mankind needs a diversity of ideas and thoughts.
- One charge of imaginative literature is to give us insight into the world around us, fellow human beings, and ourselves. The novels Anthem and Fahrenheit 451 both hold examples of a world in which people are striped of their individuality. In one sense these novels can be seen as a utopia gone bad.
- The films “Bladerunner” and “Fahrenheit 451” are similar in the way they show emotions in their depictions of distopias. The emotions shown are not normal to us, but are controlled by the government. The inhabitants of these worlds are being persuaded that emotions are bad, unhealthy.
- Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury that takes the reader to a time where books and thinking are outlawed. In a time so dreadful where those who want to better themselves by thinking and by reading are outlaws. Books and ideas are burned, books are burned physically and ideas are burned from the mind.
