I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
A young Italian boy knocked one day at the door of an artist's studio in Rome, and when it was opened, exclaimed, "Please, madam, will you give me the master's brush?" The painter was dead, and the boy, feeling inflamed with longing to be an artist, wished for the great master's brush, with the idea that it would inspire him with his genius. The lady placed the brush belonging to her departed husband in the hand of the boy, saying, "This is his brush; try it, my boy." With a flush of earnestness on his face, he tried, but found he could paint no better with the master's brush than with his own. The lady then said to him, "You cannot paint like the great master unless you have his spirit."
