“These soap carving lessons will serve you well in the future. A man who shapes soap into things like eyeballs and deer skulls and a lady's dress- why, that's a man who'll never go friendless. 'Sides, today, with things like lasers and subgum, you can double up on intricacies. Mix that yellow soap with blue, pumice stone with dry foam. Your art and your actions will be forgotten, count on it. But soap lives on. Womenfolk keep it in their mouths. Children love the smell. They like being clean. Your learning and love of learning about soap carving means you can walk around unquestioned, eating off others' plates. How I envy you. Like a dog envies a chimney.”
