A Quote by Robert M. Pirsig on zen and motorcycle maintenance

Now it's become apparent that this [cultural change] isn't a fad that going to go away next year or the year after.  It's here to stay because it's a very serious and important way of looking at things that looks incompatible with reason and order and responsibility but actually is not...  It was an intrusion on his reality.  It just blew a hole right through his whole groovy way of looking at things and he would not face up to it because it seemed to threaten his whole lifestyle.

Robert M. Pirsig (1928 -)
