Pablo Picasso was sitting in a park when a woman approached him and asked him to draw her portrait.
He opened his artist’s pad, and after studying the woman’s face for a moment, quickly drew some contoured lines. He handed the women the drawing.
“It’s perfect!” she exclaimed. “You have captured my essence with just a few strokes of your pencil! Thank you! How much do I owe you?”
“Five thousand dollars,” he replied.
The woman protested, "But it took you only a minute!"
"No, madam,” Picasso replied. “It took me a lifetime."
