No man is his craft’s master the first day.   – Proverb –

Show him rather the simple man-made things that race after race have fashioned, and that live still, in our sight and near to our hands.  Tell him of things.  He will stand beside you and wonder as you once stood in Rome by the maker of rope, or by the potter in Egypt. Show him how happy a thing can be, how blameless, how much ours.  – Rainer M. Rilke –

Craft is a link which weds science to art, to the benefit of each. – S.G. Williamson –

Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted. – Martin Luther King, Jr. –
