자전거 명언

 

"When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race."
—H.G. Wells

"Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride."
—John F. Kennedy

"I thought of that while riding my bicycle."
—Albert Einstein

"Sometimes when I tell people I ride around town on a bike, they think I'm crazy. Well, once you get used to it, riding in the city gives you a nice jolt of energy."
—David Byrne

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."
— Ernest Hemingway

"I have been riding a bicycle in New York City for almost 30 years! For transport, not for sport. At first there were only a few of us. Loners, losers, maniacs and nerds. Some of the members of Talking Heads used to make fun of me and say I was going to turn into Pee Wee Herman."
—David Byrne

"High gas prices. Expensive car payments. Traffic delays. Road rage. Expanding waistlines. There are many great reasons to consider traveling to work by bicycle. It's an effective, healthy, inexpensive, and fun alternative that is attracting more and more commuters all over the world."
—Paul Dorn

"Since the bicycle makes little demand on material or energy resources, contributes little to pollution, makes a positive contribution to health and causes little death or injury, it can be regarded as the most benevolent of machines."
—Stuart S. Wilson, Oxford University

"I don't waste a second stuck in traffic. No long waits for an oil change, a car wash, service from a parts store or a muffler shop. I spend precisely no time filling my gas tank every week. Parking is a snap. My fitness is excellent without spending endless, boring hours on a stairmaster, a treadmill or -- ugh -- a stationary cycle. There are no payments for car loans, insurance, parking, registration, tolls, fines, and tow charges."
—Paul Dorn

"I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five.
Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?
We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"
—Henri Desgrange, L'Équipe article of 1902

Get a bicycle. You will not regret it if you live. —Mark Twain

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to cycle and he will realize fishing is stupid and boring.
—Desmond Tutu

I relax by taking my bicycle apart and putting it back together again.
—Michelle Pfeiffer

 

자전거를 타고 저어갈 때 세상의 길들을 몸 속으로 흘러 들어 온다. ...


흘러오고 흘러가는 길위에서 몸은 한없이 열리고 열린 몸이 다시 몸을 이끌고 나아간다. 구르는 바퀴위에서, 몸은 낡은 시간의 몸이 아니고 생사가 명멸하는 현재의 몸이다. ....

 

자전거를 타고 저어갈 때, 몸은 세상의 길위로 흘러나간다.  구르는 바퀴위에서 몸과 길은 순결한 아날로그 방식으로 연결되는데 몸과 길사이에 엔진이 없는 것이 자전거의 축복이다. ....  

 .....


땅위의 모든 길을 다 갈 수 없고 땅위의 모든 산맥을 다 넘을 수 없다 해도 살아서 몸으로 바퀴를 굴려 나아가는 일은 복되다.    

 

---김훈의 "자전거 여행"의 프로로그중에서 ----
