I feel very fortunate to have seen this masterpiece of Michelangelo. Located in St. Peter Church in Vatican, unfortunately kept away secure behind a thick strong glass shield.
Some of Michelangelo’s thoughts:
A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it.
Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.
Genius is eternal patience.
I am still learning.
I hope that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.
I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
It is well with me only when I have a chisel in my hand.
There is no greater harm than that of time wasted.
