Daily Dose: The Beauty Inside

“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”
Michelangelo

This quote is most commonly associated with Michelangelo  as he describes his statue of David. But what he says goes beyond a block of stone. It is often the artist’s job to create as accurate a representation of reality as possible. In the case of Michelangelo and this particular statue, although he undoubtedly did a fantastic job, that statue of David will never be truly comparable to the true human being.

On that note one could use this quote as a metaphor when talking about people. You’ve probably already discovered that people can be much more than their physical appearance and like how it’s the artist’s job to see beauty within a block of stone, it’s in your best interest to get to know people beyond their surface. If you don’t you may never realize the masterpiece that lies within.
