Saying the Same Thing

“It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.”
- E.E. Cummings

A young Pablo Picasso is at home with his mother, sitting maturely on a stool with a paintbrush in his hand and a contemplative look on his face. His mother proudly says, "If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk, you'll end up as the Pope." Years later, a much older, confident Picasso responded, "I wanted to become a painter, and wound up as Picasso."
