apprentice - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The toil of the apprentice was the hard, hard road to becoming a master, the price paid not in money but sweat and hardship.
The master only took the most gifted apprentice, for one day the youth would need to surpass the master and it would take a high standard of starting talent for that to even be possible.
The road of the apprentice is what it always was - observe, practice, imitate, master - and this is why the highest masters were the most sought after to serve, and why they could be such cantankerous bastards.
There came a day, after days that blurred into each other, when the apprentice realised that she had met the level of the master and surpassed it. More than that, the master had realised it too. As long and difficult as their journey had been, it was time for each of them to take on a new student and their hearts struggled under the weight of that inner-revelation.
