gospel of excess
"Michelangelo is often quoted as having said that inside every block of stone or marble dwells a beautiful statue; one need only remove excess material to reveal the work of art within.” – The Art of Possibility (Rosamund Stone Zander)
We all have a little excess. A little more than we should. A little more than we need. A few too many pairs of that. A few too many apps. A few too many cares. A few too many things we’re holding on to.
And as we slowly let go of each excess, we not only find ourselves lighter and free, but a beautiful work of art is revealed inside of us.
