When Michelangelo was ordered to decorate the walls of the Sistine Chapel, he refused. He had ever done any work of that kind, and said he could not do it. But he was told his refusal would not be accepted. When he discovered that there was no alternative without some very unpleasant consequences, he mixed his colors and went to work. And thus came into being the world’s finest painting. There are few who realize what possibilities are locked up within them until some necessity compels them to attempt something they have always considered impossible.
