The Beauty of Speed

 “We want to sing the love of danger, the habit of energy and rashness…We declare that the splendor of the world has been enriched by a new beauty: the beauty of speed”. 
– Beginning of the Futurism art movement manifesto, which emerged early in the 20th century.

“… passing everybody and never halting the rhythmic advance that the mountains themselves intended”  
– From Keroac’s On the Road
