A Lesson from Michaelangelo

Michelangelo apparently said that in every block of marble there was a beautiful statue and all that he did was to remove the marble covering the statue. Easy!

A lesson? Yes. In every bad situation, good is waiting to come out’ What should we do? Work hard to get rid of what is bad so the good can grow and flourish. The good is there even in worrying times.

One day Michaelangelo started chipping away at a beautiful block of marble.

Here is what he found inside the marble! No further comment except wow!
