Discussion Question: Good Advice?

The following text is excerpted from the Big Read's Reader's Guide on Fahrenheit 451, reprinted courtesy of the National Endowment for the Arts.

"Don't ask to be saved in any one thing, person, machine, or library," Faber tells Montag. "Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for shore." How good is this advice?

I think it is very good advice. Any large problem, whether saving all the books in the world, or saving the planet from destruction, can only be solved if each person does their part.
