cannot know. Sometimes he is lifted by this greater source. In reality,
he knows that no matter how great his skill and experience, he ultimately

and feelings are pushed to new levels. He brings all the skill he has to
bear on the work. If his need were not so great, where would he find the
strength, the skill, the endurance?
