Jean de la Bruyere", 17th century French essayist:
“When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.”
Louis Nizer, trial lawyer, artist, lecturer, and advisor:
“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”
“There are two men inside the artist, the poet and the craftsman. One is born a poet. One becomes a craftsman.”
