Skilled

Famous quotes containing the word skilled:

    As they move into sharing parenting, men often are apprentices to women because they are not yet as skilled in child care. Mothers have to be willing to teach fathers—both by stepping in and showing and by stepping back and letting them learn.
    —Nancy Press Hawley. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 6 (1978)

    No skilled hands
    caress a stranger’s flesh with lucid oil before
    a word is spoken
    no feasting
    before a tale is told, before
    the stranger tells his name.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Most works of art are effectively treated as commodities and most artists, even when they justly claim quite other intentions, are effectively treated as a category of independent craftsmen or skilled workers producing a certain kind of marginal commodity.
    Raymond Williams (1921–1988)
