Amy and 352 other people liked mindful.librarian ☀️'s review of American Dirt:
American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
"DNF the audiobook (free review copy from Libro.fm) at 15% for various reasons including overly dramatic writing that doesn’t fit my reading preferences, major representation issues and perpetuation of racist stereotypes.

The Andromeda Evolution by Daniel H. Wilson
"“The Andromeda Evolution” genuflects appropriately to "The Andromeda Strain," the 1969 novel that instantly infected pop culture. With little genetic decay, Daniel Wilson replicates Michael Crichton’s tone and tics, particularly his wide-stance ma..." Read more of this review »

Robert M. Pirsig
“We take a handful of sand from the endless landscape of awareness around us and call that handful of sand the world.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

Michael Pollan
“The opposite of spiritual is not material but egotistical.”
Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence

Robert M. Pirsig
“Peace of mind produces right values, right values produce right thoughts. Right thoughts produce right actions and right actions produce work which will be a material reflection for others to see of the serenity at the center of it all.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

Rainer Maria Rilke
“How surely gravity's law,
strong as an ocean current,
takes hold of the smallest thing
and pulls it toward the heart of the world.

Each thing---
each stone, blossom, child---
is held in place.
Only we, in our arrogance,
push out beyond what we each belong to
for some empty freedom.

If we surrendered
to earth's intelligence
we could rise up rooted, like trees.

Instead we entangle ourselves
in knots of our own making
and struggle, lonely and confused.

So like children, we begin again
to learn from the things,
because they are in God's heart;
they have never left him.

This is what the things can teach us:
to fall,
patiently to trust our heaviness.
Even a bird has to do that
before he can fly.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke's Book of Hours: Love Poems to God

Robert M. Pirsig
“Is it hard?'
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes thats hard.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values
