The plumbing owner missed my favorite, useful and used in MANY situations:

The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy: neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

John W. Gardner -- Excellence: Can We Be Equal and Excellent Too? (1961).
