A Little Unexpected...

Quotes from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig.

“When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called a Religion.” 

“The place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands, and then work outward from there.”

“You look at where you're going and where you are and it never makes sense, but then you look back at where you've been and a pattern seems to emerge.”

“Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive” 

“We’re in such a hurry most of the time we never get much chance to talk. The result is a kind of endless day-to-day shallowness, a monotony that leaves a person wondering years later where all the time went and sorry that it’s all gone. ”

“In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame. 
On a cycle the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”
