Who knows what form the forward momentum of life will take in the time ahead or what use it will make of our anguished searching. The most that any of us can seem to do is to fashion something–an object or ourselves–and drop it into the confusion, make an offering of it, so to speak, to the life force.

Epigraph to Peter Korn, Why We Make Things and Why it Matters: The Education of a Craftsman, 2013
