Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig
"The study of the art of motorcycle maintainence is really a study of the art of rationality itself. Working on a motorcycle, working well, caring, is to become part of a process, to achieve an inner peace of mind. The motorcycle is primarily a mental phenomenon." -- Robert M. Pirsig

Quotations from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance:

 My personal feeling is that this is how any further improvement of the world will be done: by individuals making Quality decisions and that's all.

God, I don't want to have any more enthusiasm for big programs full of social planning for big masses of people that leave individual Quality out.

These can be left alone for a while. There's a place for them but they've got to be built on a foundation of Quality within the individuals involved.

We've had that individual Quality in the past, exploited it as a natural resource without knowing it, and now it's just about depleted.

Everyone's just about out of gumption. And I think it's about time to return to the rebuilding of this American resource -- individual worth.

RobertáM.áPirsig, (b. 1928) Author
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance



 Quality is a direct experience independent of and prior to intellectual abstractions.

RobertáM.áPirsig, (b. 1928) Author
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance



 Traditional scientific method has always been at the very best 20-20 hindsight. It’s good for seeing where you’ve been. It’s good for testing the truth of what you think you know, but it can’t tell you where you ought to go.
