Michelangelo obliges and sketches out the woman’s portrait.
As he passes the final sketch to the woman he tells her it will be four hundred thousand Lira.
With a look of surprise the woman asks how he can charge so much for something that took him a mere five minutes to create.
Michelangelo politely states … “My dear lady, your sketch took five minutes to create but a lifetime to learn how to create.”
Such is the Alphabiotic Method: five minutes to administer but a lifetime to master.
