The wheelwright, the carpenter, the butcher, the bowman, the swimmer, achieve their skill not by accumulating facts concerning their art, nor by the energetic use either of muscles or outward senses, but through utilizing the fundamental kinship which, underneath apparent distinctions and diversities, unites their own primal stuff to the primal stuff of the medium in which they work.
