Robert M. Pirsig, Author of 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,' Dies at 88.

Reading Prisig was a rite of passage for many of us at 19. I read him couple of more times before 25. I read his only other book Lila too. What I really valued was his struggle. It felt honest and he gave everything to face it. Every generation needs someone who dares to give oneself to a quest and I had Prisig. May he be born in the East to inspire another generation. Much gratitude to him.

    I stumbled into "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" in a used bookstore. It was like finding a kindred spirit in the quest for what is essential. His search for Quality resonated so deep. The madness resulting from the realization that the questions never end and the sanity resulting from the surrender to that realization have helped me through so many times where surrender was the last thing I wanted to do. I am forever grateful for his dedication to sharing that story in the face of all those rejections from publishers.
