“If we listened to our intellect we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go in business because we'd be cynical: "It's gonna go wrong." Or "She's going to hurt me." Or,"I've had a couple of bad love affairs, so therefore . . ." Well, that's nonsense. You're going to miss life. You've got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.”

get his classics....but he'd probably prefer you get them in paper.

"“I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can't really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, 'If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we'll talk.' All the computer can give you is a manuscript. People don't want to read manuscripts. They want to read books. Books smell good. They look good. You can press it to your bosom. You can carry it in your pocket.”

― Ray Bradbury

Old beat up paperbacks of his are often only a buck. Some of my favorites

Yeah, a lot of his old paperbacks I have seen in used bookstores.

Something Wicked This Way Comes is intriguing.

Will also look for The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, Martian Chronicles, and Fahrenheit 451.

I wonder what the source of this line is: Life is trying things to see if they work.
