“It isn’t by getting out of the world that we become enlightened, but by getting into the world…by getting so tuned in that we can ride the waves of our existence and never get tossed because we become the waves.”
― Kesey’s Garage Sale

Here are some additionally awesome quotes by Kesey…

“You can’t really be strong until you can see a funny side things.”
― One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

“Plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom.”

“I’ve never seen anybody really find the answer, but they think they have. So they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.”
