The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory. the fourth practice and the fifth teaching others.
Solomon Ibn Gabrial
The old masters...great paintings that the artist shared their time and talent to show us how they lived, what they deemed to be beautiful and to share their visions. We causally glance over them and think they are nice, yet we fail to think about the hours upon hours that it to create such a marvel. Today we are creating our life to share with future generations. Our knowledge, our talents what we do and what we say will last and move into future generations. Will they simply look at it or will they realize what we have accomplished to make their life better?
