Seeing what isn't yet there...

At the beginning of the sixteenth century, people looked at a large piece of marble and saw it as a weathered, pathetic hunk of stone.

Michaelangelo looked inside it, and saw The David.

He carefully helped lose the parts that kept The David from being The David. With loving and meticulous care, the Artist freed, for the world to see, the divine beauty that was there within the stone all along.

Look within. What do you see?

Insanity Defined

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results."

So far, via various Web searches, I've found that quote attributed to Richard Bandler, Albert Einstein, Thomas Jefferson, and Rita Mae Brown. All of whom had/have brilliant minds, of course, but I still don't know yet who said it first.

Not that it really matters. They're still brilliant words to live by. What it boils down to is:

If what you're doing isn't getting you what you want, do something different!
