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.
G. C. (Georg Christoph) Lichtenberg employing quote

The monopoly capitalists - even while employing purely empirical methods - weave around art a complicated web which converts it into a willing tool. The superstructure of society ordains the type of art in which the artist has to be educated. Rebels are subdued by its machinery and only rare talents may create their own work. The rest become shameless hacks or are crushed.
— Ernesto Che Guevara

Men seldom rise from low condition to high rank without employing either force or fraud, unless that rank should be attained either by gift or inheritance.
— Niccolo Machiavelli

From 8,000 miles away... I would not judge a fellow soldier from a friendly nation and how they are employing their resources.
— Peter Pace
