Of Pipes and Plebes

"The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity, and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity, will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water."

~ John W. Gardner, Secretary of Health Education and Welfare under LBJ and
author of "Excellence."
