Pierre Auguste Renoir

"You come to nature with your own theories, and she knocks them all flat."

French Artist
1841 - 1919

Human beings develop a lot of theories, but often those theories fall flat.  We are not as intelligent as we sometimes thing we are.  We don't know as much as we think we know.  We need to be more humble and less arrogant.  Humility is an important characteristic for a creative leader to develop.  Too much egotism leads to arrogance and intolerance.  Even the masters make mistakes and have flaws in their characters.  No one is perfect.  We all have room for growth and change.  Cultivate humility.  Cultivate forgiveness.
