carving out the angel

By December 7, 2010Leadership

I came across this quote from Michelangelo, the great Italian artist, about how he approached his art:  “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

All great musicians hear the music before they write the music.

All great film makers can see the movie before they start shooting.

All great leaders see the potential within those they lead.

Jesus looked at Simon — the impetuous one who walked on water only to sink in doubt — and changes his name to “the Rock”, also known as Peter.

You might be surrounded by angels and not know it if you can’t see it first.
