A Quote by Robert Persig on vacation, motorcycle, car, car window, passive observer, and frame

You see things vacationing on a motorcycle in a way that is completely different from any other.  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.

A Quote by Elon Musk on car, electric, alternative energy, and transportation

People will buy the car just because it's a great car. We want them to think it's excellent value for money and then, oh yeah, it happens to be electric.

A Quote by Dhammapada The Buddha on self-mastery, think, thought, mind, trouble, follow, wheel, ox, car, world, speech, action, pure mind, happiness, shadow, enemy, mastered, and unguarded

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind
And trouble will forllow you
As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with a pure mind
And happiness will follow you
As your shadow, unbreakable.

How can a troubled mind
Understand the way?

Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your own thoughts, unguarded.

But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.

Dhammapada The Buddha

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on car, wisdom, mirror, past, and realising

Realising where we are comeing from, is a good start in wisdom. But, as any wise man will tell you. When you drive a car, it is better to look in front of you, and back through a mirror, then the other way around. So...
To find wisdom, look where you are heading. Look around where you are now. As long as you do this objectively, you can always use the mirror to see what things lie in the past so that they don't hit you, because they forget to look in front of them...

A Quote by E. James (Jim) Rohn on patience, patient, time, car, traffic, light, stoplight, green, red, horn, and honk

Americans are incredibly inpatient. Someone once said that the shortest period of time in America is the time between when the light turns green and when you hear the first horn honk.
