Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.
— Tom Stoppard

You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick... You're back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps... so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in.
Dylan Thomas craftsmanship quote

To craftsmanship we shall add statesmanship in the capitol of peace.
— Warren R. Austin

Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind.
— Johannes Brahms

The machinery of mass-corporatization loves the lazy, closed-minded tendencies of ignorant consumers, who have underdeveloped palates for quality craftsmanship.
— craftsmanship quotation by Bryant H. McGill
