“It works a magic to look upon distance. Some people can’t abide it, bigness makes them feel small, instead of offering a challenge. Big country can breed big men. There is knowledge in the muscles of a workman that goes beyond the mind, a skill that lies in the flesh and the fiber and my hands and heart held a love for the wood. To destroy is easy, to build is hard. To scoff is also easy but to go on in the face of scoffing and to do what is right is the way of man.”
I copied this quote from a western paperback, to me it describes how I feel about working on cars and working with my hands. Many can tear down and destroy but few can build and repair. To some the unknown is scarey, to others it is a challenge to conquer and overcome. I love to build, I love to solve problems it’s what makes me come alive.
