Excellence

The Greek sculptor Phidias was busy chiseling the strands of hair on the back of the head of his statue of Athena which was to stand in the Acropolis.

A passerby posed a question: “That figure is to stand a hundred feet high, with its back to a marble wall. Who will ever know what details you are putting behind there?”

Phidias replied, “I will.”
