Hands Head & Heart

What a fabulous quote. I feel this to the core.

“He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”

Cheers to all my fellow artists, whether it be visual art, music, or performance.

Quote: "He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist."

As much as I love this quote, apparently it is not correctly attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi as it has not been located in his writings.

1948: Louis Nizer, and American lawyer, has been cited as the author.

1923: Etymologist Barry Popik – “He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his brain is an artisan. He who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.” (artisan, not craftsman)

1916: American Falls ID Press, no authorship cited – “He who works with his hands is a laborer; he who works with his head and his hands is an artizen; he who works with his head, hand and heart is an artist.” (simpler wording)

That’s the extent of my research. And I love the quote, whoever said it.
