Colorful Wisdom

Brian Munley's avatar Brian Munley

An interweaving of colored string through a grid of nails giving a quote of wisdom. "EFFORT DOES NOT BETRAY YOU" - For every nail that was pounded in, to every line of string used, it may seem like tedious work, but the payoff is great. The effort put into anything in life may seem without a point, but when the results show, it's obvious that all the effort was not spent in vain. "EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON" - The nails are the everyday events in our lives, small, but present, and the string is the path we take, from one point to another and back again. It's the connections we make and the culmination of all of these events and points in our life that make up the greater image. No single thing is unimportant or wrong, for without just one event, one nail, the overall result wouldn't be the same.
