Creating a Masterpiece

Listening to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, gazing at Michelangelo’s Pietá or da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, hearing Leonard Bernstein’s music in a production of West Side Story, or reading the works of William Shakespeare may well leave you in a state of wonder and amazement.

They chip away at their creations, some days making more progress than others. A single work of art may take ten minutes, ten days, or ten years or more. The answer isn’t simple.

There is no quality so great, none so much needed now.
