Motivational Podcast Excerpt: Michelangelo was one day explaining to a visitor at his studio what he had been doing to a statue since a previous visit. "I have retouched this part—polished that—softened this feature—brought out that muscle— given some expression to this lip, and more energy to that limb." 

"But those are trifles," said the visitor. 

"It may be so," replied Michelangelo, "but recollect that trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle."
