Day 144, May 24

"If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful after all."--Michelangelo

Centuries after his death, Michelangelo is still regarded as an artistic genius, his work managing to inspire generation after generation.  But his genius came with a price tag, one of sweat, tears, work, and more work.    To create such masterpieces as The Pieta, David, and others required he give his all.

I realize that, as much as I say I want to write a best-selling book, I'm not willing to give my all.  I allow other things to get in my way:  laziness, procrastination, and fear.

Joy for today:  giving one's all.

  1. What an interesting quote. Reminds me of me being my CPA license and all I had to give for it.
