Freedom and discipline 


“Freedom and discipline – we do talk about these things. It is in the times, I suppose, to pit the one against the other, or at least to separate them. Another mode of thinking is that one must be bought at the price of the other: Either we accept discipline and are bound (hampered) by it or we find our own way by first being free to do so. Know-how is often associated with conservatism; whole groups have rebelled against it, re-furnishing a school, so to speak, their way. And much knowledge has been obscured by slogans.

-James Krenov, ‘The Impractical Cabinetmaker’ 1979, p42.
