On: The Theory of Decorative Art (and the dangers of the comma splice)

There are two reasons, both weighty, against this practice: one, that all cast and machine work is bad, as work; the other, that it is dishonest. [...] Its dishonesty, however, which, to my mind, is the grossest kind, is, I think, a sufficient reason to determine absolute and unconditional rejection of it.

-John Ruskin, "the Lamp of Truth"

I have it on good authority that when she woke up today, she sat down and picked up the needles. Soon I shall amass my knitting army, and we will wage war on coldness. Aliteration is my friend.
