“When employers designate certain jobs “professional” and insist that employees have professional training – not just the technical skills that seem sufficient to do the work – they must have more in mind than efficiency. Hierarchical organizations need professionals, because through professionals those at the top control the political content of what is produced, and because professionals contribute to the bosses’ control of the workforce itself.”

“As I said before, I took to miniature painting without a completely whole heart, on the advice of my elders and betters. Generally speaking, I do not think that one should ever take another person’s advice in the things of life that really matter, but follow the dictates of the still small something in one’s innermost self. But ‘they’ advised, and I bowed to the advice; and in this particular instance it was a good thing I did, because the advice turned out to be so resoundingly wrong that it turned me into another direction altogether. If I had gone on working in oils I might very well have been a dedicated but unsuccessful painter to this day.”
― Rosemary Sutcliff, Blue Remembered Hills: A Recollection
