When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kinds of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt.” Robert M. Persia, Zen and the Art of MotorcycleMaintenance : An Inquiry Into Values You're a passive observer, and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame.

“But to tear down a factory or to revolt against a government or to avoid repair of a motorcycle because it is a system is to attack effects rather than causes; and as long as the attack is upon effects only, no change is possible. The true system, the real system, is our present construction of systematic thought itself, rationality itself, and if a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then that rationality will simply produce another factory.

“Mind has no matter or energy, but they can't escape its predominance over everything they do. I don't get upset when scientists say that ghosts exist in the mind.

“Laws of nature are human inventions, like ghosts. Law of logic, of mathematics are also human inventions, like ghosts.

Your common sense is nothing more than the voices of thousands and thousands of these ghosts from the past.” Robert M. Persia, Zen and the Art of MotorcycleMaintenance : An Inquiry Into Values “The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of the mountain, or in the petals of a flower.

“To the untrained eye ego-climbing and selfless climbing may appear identical. He’s likely to miss a beautiful passage of sunlight through the trees.

“What is in mind is a sort of Chautauqua-that’s the only name I can think of for it-like the traveling tent-show Chautauqua's that used to move across America, this America, the one that we are now in, an old-time series of popular talks intended to edify and entertain, improve the mind and bring culture and enlightenment to the ears and thoughts of the hearer. The Chautauqua's were pushed aside by faster-paced radio, movies and TV, and it seems to me the change was not entirely an improvement.

Perhaps because of these changes the stream of national consciousness moves faster now, and is broader, but it seems to run less deep.” “‘This divorce of art from technology is completely unnatural.

Rotisserie assembly is actually a long-lost branch of sculpture, so divorced from its roots by centuries of intellectual wrong turns that just to associate the two sounds ludicrous.‘” Laws of logic, of mathematics are also human inventions, like ghosts.

“There has been a haze, a backup problem in this Chautauqua so far; I talked about caring the first day and then realized I couldn’t say anything meaningful about caring until its inverse side, Quality, is understood. “If you’re going to repair a motorcycle, an adequate supply of gumption is the first and most important tool.

If you haven’t got that you might as well gather all the other tools and put them away, because they won’t do you any good. The way to resolve the conflict is to break down the barriers of dualistic thought that prevent a real understanding of what technology is -not an exploitation of nature, but a fusion of nature and the human spirit into a new kind of creation that transcends both.

Best quotes from the book: Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Robert M. Persia | by Amit Panda | Medium There’s a bit of time of leisure at hand, that we get these days, courtesy COVID-19, I am just thinking to summarize some good quotes from a few of my favorite books.

Jotting down some of my favorite quotes from this book: “The school was what could euphemistically be called a “teaching college”.

What’s really demanded in the Church of Reason is not ability, but inability.

The Chautauqua's were pushed aside by faster-paced radio, movies and TV, and it seems to me the change was not entirely an improvement. Perhaps because of these changes the stream of national consciousness moves faster now, and is broader, but it seems to run less deep.

Page Number and Citation: 8-9 Cite this Quote There are eras of human history in which the channels of thought have been too deeply cut and no change was possible, and nothing new ever happened, and best was a matter of dogma, but that is not the situation now.

Laws of nature are human inventions, like ghosts. Laws of logic, of mathematics are also human inventions, like ghosts.

The world has no existence whatsoever outside the human imagination. But the world as revealed by its scientific discoveries is also reality, regardless of how it may appear, and people in John’s dimension are going to have to do more than just ignore it if they want to hang on to their vision of reality.

What has become an urgent necessity is a way of looking at the world that does violence to neither of these two kinds of understanding and unites them into one? Such an understanding will not reject sand-sorting or contemplation of unsorted sand for its own sake.

This divorce of art from technology is completely unnatural. Rotisserie assembly is actually a long-lost branch of sculpture, so divorced from its roots by centuries of intellectual wrong turns that just to associate the two sounds ludicrous.

Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion.

Phaedra’ refusal to define Quality, in terms of this analogy, was an attempt to break the grip of the classical sand sifting mode of understanding and find a point of common understanding between the classic and romantic worlds. Quality, the cleavage term between hip and square, seemed to be it.

It was just that the romantic left it alone and appreciated it for what it was and the classic tried to turn it into a set of intellectual building blocks for other purposes. Now, with the definition blocked, the classic mind was forced to view Quality as the romantic did, undistorted by thought structures.

There has been a haze, a backup problem in this Chautauqua so far; I talked about caring the first day and then realized I couldn’t say anything meaningful about caring until its inverse side, Quality, is understood. I think it’s important now to tie care to Quality by pointing out that care and Quality are internal and external aspects of the same thing.

The way to resolve the conflict is to break down the barriers of dualistic thought that prevent a real understanding of what technology is ... not an exploitation of nature, but a fusion of nature and the human spirit into a new kind of creation that transcends both. When this transcendence occurs in such events as the first airplane flight across the ocean or the first footstep on the moon, a kind of public recognition of the transcendent nature of technology occurs.

If you’re going to repair a motorcycle, an adequate supply of gumption is the first and most important tool. If you haven’t got that you might as well gather all the other tools and put them away, because they won’t do you any good.
