(of Artistic Concerns) Cecil Orion
Within the Great Harmony of things
each is accorded its rightful
Things which exceed their
limit soon collapse.
While things too delicate to sustain
themselves are nurtured.
Yet, it often happens in the
institutions of the arts that those
honored are given more attention
than they need.
While those who are overlooked
Are ignored all the more.
Therefore the mastercraftsman dedicates
to his work without expectation
He does not gauge his worth by
the honors conferred
on him and is not swayed by the
of his audience.
