You don’t remain for absolutely nothing.? “She was as reasonable as you and I, more so possibly, and we burnt her. That’s water under the bridge. No not water; fire. You ever seen a scorched house? It smolders for days. Well this fire’ll last me the rest of my life. “( 51) This causes Montag to be “reborn” from all the books he’s scorched, he ends up being obsessed with books. He thinks that books may make him happy again. Faber is the previous English teacher who never stood up against the obliteration of books: “you are taking a look at a coward. I saw the method things were going, a very long time back. I stated nothing.
I’m one of the innocents who could have spoken out and out when on one would listen to the “guilty,” however I did not speak and thus ended up being guilty myself. “( 82) But when Montag lastly “encourages” or threatens to follow through with the strategy Faber he gets more into it: “To see the firehouses burn throughout the land, ruined as hotbeds of treason. The salamander devours his tail! Ho, God! “( 85) Faber’s imagine books returning and the extinction firemen is “reborn.” Faber offers Montag a bug (hidden listening device) to assist him with the strategy to remove the fireman.

And it appears like we’re doing the very same thing, over and over, however we’ve got on damn thing the phoenix never ever had. We understand the damn silly thing we just did.
We understand all the damn ridiculous things we’ve done for a thousand years and as long as we understand that and constantly have it around where we can see it, one day we’ll stop making the goddamn funeral pyres and leaping in the middle of them. “( 163) Granger is informing Montag about how their society is like the phoenix because after whatever increases in flames. They’ll begin all over once again, just like the phoenix; they will rebuild and try to fix all the issues there was before, unlike the phoenix which does no have thinking.
