If I were a carpenter

Carpenters, or indeed any people who are good with their hands, should not look down on bookish people, for if all the bookish people were that good with their hands, there wouldn't be any work for the carpenters, etc. Conversely, bookish people or academics should not look down on people who work with their hands either, for without them, they would be in trouble. We each have a role to play in society and we complement each other.
