Picaso quote on experience

A woman approached Picasso in a restaurant, asked him to scribble something on a napkin, and said she would be happy to pay whatever he felt it was worth. Picasso complied and then said,

That will be $10,000.”

But you did that in thirty seconds,” the astonished woman replied.

“No,” Picasso said. “It has taken me forty years to do that.”

It took me a few seconds to draw it, but it took me 34 years to learn how to draw it in a few seconds.”
