Skill

Chance is movement without order,
and skill is the force which creates order.
The Earth is kept in order
by means of humanity’s knowledge
and application of the arts and sciences-
for Atum willed that the universe
should not be complete
until man had played his part.

Hermes Trismegistus
from, The Hermetica
translated by Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy
