Transcript of Fahrenheit 451
"Those who don't build must burn. It's as old as history and juvenile delinquents." Page 85
“There must be something in books, something we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.” Page 48
"Do you know why books such as this are so important? Because they have quality. And what does the word quality mean? To me it means texture. This book has pores." Page 83.

"The things you're looking for, Montag, are in the world, but the only way the average chap will ever see ninety-nine percent of them is in a book. Don't ask for guarantees." Page 82
Knowledge is power, if knowledge is held by the wrong people, then there is nothing but corruption.
Power is held by the government throughout the book. No one is allowed access to the books and their power, therefore not giving people the right to knowledge and corrupting them of what they think life should be like.
Montag is realizing that the books he has been taught to hate are not really needed to be disliked and burned. That they do obtain this "quality" or knowledge he is looking for.
Captain Beatty speaks these lines while explaining the revisionist history of firemen to Montag in his home.He is willing to defend the “equalization” of society while still remaining educated himself, and denounces the use of books as weapons while freely using them that way himself.
Faber speaks as he explains the importance of books. Faber tells Montag that it’s not the books themselves that Montag is looking for, but the meaning they contain. According to Faber, Montag is really in search of “quality,” which the professor defines as “texture”—the details of life. People need quality information, the leisure to digest it, and the freedom to act on what has been learned.
Faber is talking to Montag in this quote. Faber tells Montag that what he's looking for can only be found in a book. Only books hold the knowledge that is wanted to be learned.
