The Mirror of the Sea

"The attainment of proficiency, the pushing of your skill with attention to the most delicate shades of excellence, is a matter of vital concern. Efficiency of a practiacally flawless kind may be reached naturally in the struggle for bread. But there is something beyond - a higher point, a subtle and unmistakeable touch of love and pride beyond mere skill, almost an inspiration which gives to all work that finish which is almost art -- which IS art."
-Joseph Conrad-The Mirror of the Sea
