"There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches. ... In sum, do not insult me with the beheadings, finger-choppings or the lung-deflations you plan for my works. I need my head to shake or nod, my hand to wave or make into a fist, my lungs to shout or whisper with. I will not go gently onto a shelf, degutted, to become a non-book."
- Ray Bradbury, a personal note on censorship in his Coda to Fahrenheit 451
