An artisan works for money. An artist works for love. The minister governs for civic duty or illicit bribes. The minstrel plays for the laughter of god above.
An artisan makes the same piece every day. An artist never does the same thing twice. The minister ignores the cries and cheers of the people. The minstrel chases away the mice.
An artisan is cursed with callouses. An artist is cursed with poverty. The minister is cursed when out of earshot. The minstrel’s only curse is liberty.
