"The Woodcarvers Creed" By David S. Paul
It is a gift from God, the power to create. It's in the hands of the craftsman and his blade, flowing freely with the grain. Free of uninspired thoughts, guided by the beauty of nature and with the families affections, the carver's feelings flow directly from the heart to the mind and then the hand. So natural a human skill should never be lost to the bite of a machine!
