Season For Death, Season For Life

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 reads “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted, A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh.” This bible verse was referenced in Fahrenheit 451 and resonates with me a lot. When Caesar burned down my building and all of my books so much of me died, physically and emotionally. I feel as though Montag can relate to the feeling also. The devastation of the death of our town and our books was horrible… but there is a time to die (which is in the past), and time to be born and make new. Now I am ready to make an influence and an impact on the future of literature. Thank you Bradbury for inspiring me to do so.

  1. Hello Alexandria,
    I am so sorry to hear about the destruction of your town. That must have been so painful to watch. But, like you said, Montag is a symbol of hope that you can use to encourage and inspire you. He was a dead man walking until he escaped once and for all into the wilderness. The affairs of man are disastrous, while those of nature are rejuvenating. –Clarisse McClellan
