Tori Amos had a major influence on how I craft words in a song. Until I heard 'Little Earthquakes' all my lyrics used really obvious analogies like rain for tears.
After secretly observing the unstudied grace of her movements, the most celebrated picture-maker of the province burned the implements of his Craft, and began life anew as a trainer of performing elephants.ernest bramah
It is possible that the malice of writers has been overrated (by myself among others). Reading their ruminations on their Craft, one sees why this writer could not possibly like that one, would indeed consider him a menace. Literature is a battleground of conflicting faiths, and nobler passions than envy are involved.wilfrid sheed
The Craft is finding a decent drainpipe to get access to the site as much as it is in the art... Van Gogh used short, stumpy brush strokes to convey his insanity – I use short, thin ledges above mainline train tracks.Banksy
In the Craft the Goddess is not omnipotent. The cosmos is interesting rather than perfect, and everything is not part of some greater plan, nor is all necessarily under control.starhawk
High diddle diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle, The Cow jump'd over the Moon, The little dog laugh'd to see such Craft, And the Dish ran away with the Spoon.
In the Craft the Goddess is not omnipotent. The cosmos is interesting rather than perfect , and everything is not part of some greater plan, nor is all necessarily under control. Understanding this keeps us humble, able to admit that we cannot know or control or define everything.
Wisdom without honesty is mere Craft and cozenage. And therefore the reputation for honesty must first be gotten; which cannot be but by living well. A good life is a main argument.Ben Jonson
There are few hauteurs higher than foreign reporters' disdain for those who have not shared their Craft.
All life is based on the fact that anything worth getting is hard to get. There is a price to be paid for anything. Scholarship can only be bought at the price of study, skill of Craft or technique can only be bought at the price of practice, and eminence in any sport can only be bought at the price of training and discipline.
Study your Craft and know who you are and what's special about you. Find out what everyone does on a film set, ask questions and listen. Make sure you live life, which means don't do things where you court celebrity, and give something positive back to our society.paul newman
Experimental science is a Craft and an art, and part of the art is knowing when to end a fruitless experiment. There is a danger of becoming obsessed with a fruitless experiment even if it goes nowhere. It is always a good plan for a speculative experimenter to have two experiments going, or at least one going and one being built.martin lewis perl
Let us invent a character, a nice respectable, middle-class, middle-aged, maiden lady, with time on her hands and the money to help her pass it. She enjoys pictures, books, music, and the theatre and though to none of these arts (or rather, for consistency's sake, to none of these three arts and the one Craft) does she bring much knowledge or discernment, at least, as she is apt to tell her cronies, she "does know what she likes". Let us call her Aunt Edna.terence rattigan
Independent derivation meshed beautifully with the triumph, from the 1930's on, of a strict version of Darwinism based on the near ubiquity of adaptive design built by natural selection... Arthropods and vertebrates do share several features of functional design. But those similarities only reflect the power of natural selection to Craft optimal structures independently in a world of limited biomechanical solutions to common functional problems - an evolutionary phenomenon called convergence .stephen jay gould
I was 8 or 9 when I had a sighting of a disk-shaped Craft that convinced me that it was certainly not an airplane or anything conventional.steven m. greer
...it is one of the most famous cities of India... highly popular among both domestic and foreign tourists who are attracted to its living Craft traditions, its palaces and regularly planned walled city at its core.
Teamwork is at the core of this Craft, with the process comprising seven stages: designing and drawing, carpentry, handcutting and shaping of motifs, scooping the exact pattern on the rosewood surface, fixing and inlaying followed by sand papering, polishing, engraving the details and the final finish.
Marry because you have drank with the king, And the king hath so graciously pledged you, You shall no more be called shoemakers. But you and yours to the world's end Shall be called the trade of the gentle Craft.
Whoever has a keen eye for profits, is blind in relation to his Craft.Sophocles

On the whole, however, the conclusions I have drawn from the proofs quoted may, I believe, safely be relied on. Assuredly they will not be disturbed either by the lays of a poet displaying the exaggeration of his Craft, or by the compositions of the chroniclers that are attractive at truth's expense; the subjects they treat of being out of the reach of evidence, and time having robbed most of them of historical value by enthroning them in the region of legend.
My space Craft.
But they will maintain the state of the world; And all their desire is in the work of their Craft.
It is in the gift for employing all the vicissitudes of life to one's own advantage and to that of one's Craft that a large part of genius consists.
