Enthusiasm Versus Apathy
¶ To ensure enthusiasm for good workmanship among craftsmen, they must be relieved from the hard pressure of circumstance. They must neither be pressed for time nor by want. They must be removed from the necessity of slovenly production. They must be led to perceive and acknowledge the value: that is the usefulness or the beauty of the materials which they daily handle; so that waste, that enemy of the workshop, may not enter to create dissension between the employer and employed. They must be taught to respect the work of their own hands so that it may come to be for them a subject of great interest, care and love. They must be made to feel their worth and dignity as producers, as one of the prime factors of organized and civlized life.
