“The satisfactions of manifesting oneself concretely in the world through manual competence have been known to make a man quiet and easy.

They seem to relieve him of the felt need to offer chattering interpretations of himself to vindicate his worth. He can simply point: the building stands, the car now runs, the lights are on. Boasting is what a boy does, because he has no real effect in the world.”

Matthew B. Crawford: Shop Class as Soulcraft
