What is the Biblical reference for the "Lilies of the Field" allusion in "Fahrenheit 451"?
In the New Testament of the Bible, contained in the Gospel according to Matthew, Chapter 6 verse 28, it says
"And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing"
The lilies can survive despite not labouring, as God is said to provide for them.
