Fahrenheit 451 theme

posted by .

Which detail from the text best exemplifies the theme of the novel?

1) “We know the damn silly thing we just did. We know all the damn silly things we’ve done for a thousand years and as long as we know that and always have it around where we can see it, someday we’ll stop making the funeral pyres and jumping in the middle of them.”
2) “When they ask us what we are doing, you can say, We’re remembering. That’s where will win out in the long run. And someday we’ll remember so much that we’ll build the biggest grave of all time and shove war in and cover it up.”
3) “Somewhere the saving and putting away had to begin again and someone had to do the saving and keeping, one way or another, in books, in records, in people’s heads, any way at all so long as it was safe, free from moths, silverfish, rust and dry-rot, and men with matches.”
4) “I could feel it for a long time, I was saving something up, I went around doing one thing and feeling another. God, it was all there. It’s a wonder it didn’t show on me, like fat. And now I am, messing up your life, too.”
