Heidi Montag has stated several times before that she wants to have four children, hopefully all boys. On the season finale of The Hills, Season 4, she said "I think I want all boys...I want to be the Queen of the throne, I don't want any little girls coming in, riding with me!"
you sort of have to read into it more but the technology is taking away from face-to-face, personal interactions (much like texting and teenagers today). This in turn is taking emotions out of life. Clarrise is, in my opinion, a symbol of the old times when everyone lived life with other people...
Depends what part your meaning by. If it's the part when Faber has just shown him the ear piece then Faber is telling him to go the fire station to hear the voices of the firemen. But if it's when Montag is being hunted down by the Hound, then Faber is telling him to "follow the railroad tracks" in...
Montag tries to keep his book reading hidden. He also participates in the burning of other books.

    "Number One: quality of information.   Number Two: leisure to digest it.   Number Three: the right to carry out actions based on what we learn from the interaction of the first two."
ok, for the person that said that this person was rude and immature about the answer to this, well guess what? They were actually right, society did become nothingness because all anyone did in that society anymore was sit in their houses all day and watch t.v., no one ever did anything. I mean...
She started the fire herself.
When Montag confronts Mildred about her suicide attempt, she does not let him speak but instead, she continues dismissing him. Mildred seems to have skeletons in the closet. However, she chooses to be self-contained and does not share her problems.She seems to mask her pain with her technology and...
Montag believed that those in the world should be educated by other book keepers in the hopes that the previous errors made by human society could be avoided .
Because each man represented the something lost when all the books in the world were burned. Each man called himself by a famous author or piece of literature to preserve literature for the future.
Guy Montags weaknesses is losing his wife and losing Clarisse too. He wants to have kids but his wife doesn't.
Its the only remaining book he has left. Guy Montag memorizes the book of Ecclesiastes so that no one can take it away from him, it will stay in his memory forever.
Montag is a fireman, and in Fahrenheit 451 firemen start fires instead of putting them out. The only reason the firemen burn the houses is if books are in them, because it is illegal to read books. Most houses dont catch on fire though, because most are made fireproof.
They memorized books so they could pass them down throught the generations and books wouldn't be forgotten.
The men Montag met were trying to memorize books so they wouldn't be forgotten. They identified themselves as an author or piece of literature because that was the book or author of the book they had memorized.
It is the advertisement that keeps playing over and over so that the people can not think -- akin to our modern advertising blitz that puts the idea into our minds to buy, buy, buy without thinking.
Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper burns. If Bradbury hadn't put book burning in the book it wouldn't have any subject matter, there wouldn't be a book at all - you would have effectively burnt 'Fahrenheit 451'. Basically Ray Bradbury loves books and he's making a point about how...
As Mildred runs out the front door, she mutters 'Poor family, poor family, oh everything gone, everything, everything gone now…' Obviously, her main concern as she runs out is of her 'family', or the parlor walls, burning down.
The book never says how, but they meet in Chicago.
She made him rethink his life by telling him he was not happy
He uses the seashells and the parlor walls to completely surround the characters and portray them as mindless and absorbed in technology.
Neither Mildred nor Captain Beatty says exactly how Clarisse was killed. We just don't know.
I believe that Montag is white, because there are several mentions in the story about how "blacks" don't like something, such as when Beatty is decribing how the book burning started and he mentions Little Black Sambo.
Most likely because Mildred has never wanted to take the burden of having a child.
She is hit by a car and killed. It was not an accident because the kids who killed her hit people for the enjoyment of it, as described later in the book.
It is a mechanical dog type thing that can hunt down anybody that has books.

Ray Bradbury was born on August 22, 1920.
She talked about it like it was nothing out of the ordinary.
Guy Montag worked from dawn until dusk as a fireman burning books, his wife Mildred however, only watched TV or had seashells in her ears. They rarely talk but only about useless silly things or they fought. She had no cares for him and he later on in the book, realized he did not care for her....

  It makes the book easier to read. It makes it more descriptive and it gives the reader a better picturization on what is happening during the story. this style of point of view also allows you to see what all the characters are seeing.
451 AD at the council of Chalcedon.
All of Ray's children were daughters. The oldest was Susan, followed by Ramona, Bettina, and Alexandria respectively.
He actually is the first fireman but not for the same purpose. The people in the book just assume that he burned books because that was how their firemen worked. The people I refer to are the people in the story.
Beatty was the fire captain, Montag's boss
the fact that she had a 4th foot and she can eat her own toe nails
Well they wanted to stop global warming by planting lots of flowers. Oh and books.
Well there were a lot of lonely people so they just found everyone a girlfriend. And gave out real dogs not mechanical dogs.

Mildred received help for her overdose when Montag called the  hospital and the technicians came to revive her using an  "electric-eyed snake" tool.
Number One: quality of information. Number Two: leisure to digest it. Number Three: the right to carry out actions based on what we learn from the interaction of the first two.
Clarisse is innocent, and questions the rationale of society. Montag's wife is the opposite, and accepts everything.

Technology is taking the minds and ruining peoples lives. Family is no longer important because everyone is watching T.V., burning books, speeding, and not giving a crap.

She though that firemen were supposed to prevent fires instead of starting them.
Guy has a conflict with the government because he wants to read the books and find out the truth but he can't have book because the firefighters will burn your home and put you in prison.
Unlike the othere houses the firemen destroyed the owner Mrs. Blake was home.
With every other house, the occupants were removed and the house  was taped off. At Mrs. Blake's house, she remained there, not  abandoning the books that were being burned, and as such died along  with them. This struck hard with Montag.
The government gets all the citizens of the city to get up and look  out of their house, everyone, in every house on every street. They  reason that if everyone stops and looks, they'll be able to see  Montag because he will be the only one running.
The value is that it has no value. All the books mean nothing to those firemen in that society.
It symbolized where he was going in life
hes knees are bad and hes old
It means that Montag is returning to his job as a fireman. Sheep are known as blind followers and Beatty is talking about how Montag returned to his job which Beatty knows, Montag knows, is wrong.
According to Beatty, firemen can keep the books for 24 or 48 hours, but must burn them after that. Otherwise, other firemen will come to burn them.
