The famous painter Picasso visited his local cabinetmaker to commission a mahogany cabinet for his house. To illustrate the shape and dimensions he required, he drew a hasty typically abstract sketch on a scrap of paper and handed it to the craftsman.

                “How much will it cost?” he asked.

                “Nothing at all,” replied the cabinetmaker. “Just sign your name to the sketch.” 

                -Clifton Fadiman
