Behind Great

Behind that great painting is a lousy painting. Hundreds of lousy paintings made up of hundreds of lousy brush strokes. Behind that great book are sentences rearranged and words removed. The hundreds of words you read in that book are the hundreds of words that have replaced the words that didn’t quite fit.

It’s likely that the work you enjoy so much was created by an artist who wasn’t always so talented.
