Fire as Motif

FHT451-BUKORN

Which quote from the text provides an example of Montag's earlier realization that fire can be used for warmth and not just as a tool for destruction?

A

"Books can be beaten down with reason. But with all my knowledge and skepticism, I have never been able to argue with a one-hundred-piece symphony orchestra, full colour, three dimensions, and I being in and part of those incredible parlours."

B

"He [Montag] watched the dark steaming mixture pour into a collapsible tin cup, which was handed him straight off. He sipped it gingerly and felt them looking at him with curiosity. His lips were scalded, but that was good."

C

"You're one of the few who put up with me. That's why I think it's so strange you're a fireman, it just doesn't seem right for you, somehow."

D

"But who has ever torn himself from the claw that encloses you when you drop a seed in a TV parlour? It grows you any shape it wishes! It is an environment as real as the world. It becomes and is the truth."

E

"It was a pleasure to burn. It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed."
