You Are Never Dedicated To Something You Have Complete Confidence In. No One Is Fanatically Shouting That The Sun Is Going To Rise Tomorrow. They Know It Is Going To Rise Tomorrow. When People Are Fanatically Dedicated To Political Or Religious Faiths Or Any Other Kinds Of Dogmas Or Goals, Its Always Because These Dogmas Or Goals Are In Doubt.
~ Robert M. Pirsig

To Know That What Is Impenetrable To Us Really Exists, Manifesting Itself As The Highest Wisdom And The Most Radiant Beauty, Which Our Dull Facilities Can Comprehend Only In The Most Primitive Forms--this Knowledge, This Feeling, Is At The Center Of True Religiousness.
