" Montag had only an instant to read a line, but it blazed as if stamped there with fiery steel"(Bradbury 82).
This quote is relevant to the idea of the book. The book shows a dystopia and a complete different lifestyle than our own. The idea of reading being wrong is very backward and different than what we grew up learning about books in our world. We respect books because they give us knowledge, and knowledge is power. In the world in the book, books are a big no no. The idea of ignorance was key to survival which is what the government tried to portray with the extinguishing of all books. The more you knew, the more of a threat you were to everyone around you.
