Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values - Robert M. Pirsig

"If a revolution destroys a systematic government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves in the succeeding government. There's so much talk about the system. And so little understanding."

 

"Oh, the laws of physics and of logic... the number system... the principle of algebraic substitution.  These are ghosts. We just believe in them so thoroughly they seem real."

 

"We are all of us very arrogant and conceited about running down other people's ghosts but just as ignorant and barbaric and superstitious about our own."

 

"Einstein had said: 'Man tries to make for himself in the fashion that suits him best a simplified and intelligible picture of the world.'"

 

"The more you look, the more you see."
