1.A painting is more than the sum of its parts. A cow by itself is just a cow. A meadow by itself is
just grass, flowers. And the sun peeking through the trees is just a beam of light. But you put
them all together and it can be magic.
2.Some days the sunsets would be purple and pink. And some days they were a blazing orange
setting fire to the clouds on the horizon. It was during one of those sunsets that my father's idea
of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts moved from my head to my heart.
3.Sometimes a little discomfort in the beginning can save a whole lot of pain down the road.
