Rembrandt, Di Vinci, and Monet used the same three primary colors contained in every box of crayons.
Pythagoras, Newton, and Einstein were limited to the same 10 digits that appear on the face of every cell phone.
Bach, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky used the same seven basic notes every student learns the first day of music class.
3 colors - 10 digits - 7 notes. It is what we do with knowledge that determines our success or failure.
