You can learn from stone by Vijay Eswaran

A great Italian sculptor was brought by the Bishop of Florence to create a statue.

One tonne of marble was brought and put up in the front of the chapel. The sculptor was told: “They have the Sistine Chapel, now I want something special here, in Florence. I want it to be the best ever.” He commissioned him and asked: “How long do you need?” He said: “I need a year.” He said, “Ok, take a year”.
