The classical artist Renoit is revered in the world of art. He left many works of art that are respected and admired the world over. But Mr. Renoit had a problem later in life that caused him terrible pain – he had arthritis in his hands. Arthritis in an artist’s hands is about like a musician whose hearing fails, and he really suffered because of it. It was so bad that he would wince in pain as he applied each brush stroke. In fact, it finally got so bad that he tied the brush to his wrist so he could keep painting.

His young assistant asked him, “Mr. Renoit, why do you keep painting when it causes you so much pain?” To which he replied, “My son, I do not paint for the moment. I paint for the legacy.”
