On the subject of how to be guided in what to do

As Robert Persig has said, it is quality that guides us, and quality will not be cut into pieces and made the subject of science or reason.  And as we all say, all you need is love.

I used to think of that when I lived in the centre of an old, historic town in England. On a holiday day, people would buy an ice-cream from the little van and stand in a reverie with a slightly lost and dreamy look. And I asked myself why they chose to stand there and not in the street where they lived.

And I think it was because of the Norman cathedral, the ancient castle, and the Elizabethan buildings that leant against one another in the square at the top of the hill.  Those buildings were put together by craftsmen who loved.  That single understanding helps anyone to sort the wheat from the chaff.
