Self-Sufficiency

The following is a quote from The Concise Guide to Self-Sufficiency by John Seymour:

“One of the essential characteristics of a good home is craftsmanship. It seems to me that all human artifacts give off a sort of cultural radiation, depending on how much love and art has gone into their production. A mass-produced article of furniture comes from a high-speed, high-tech factory, using plastics and often working with wood that has been destroyed by chipping and glueing (…) Furniture made by a craftsman, on the other hand, is full of care and made with sympathy for the wood. It will last for generations and be a constant beacon of beauty in the home.”

A beacon of beauty. Right on.
