Thoughts: Andrea del Sarto was a successful painter – successful, but not exciting. As he admitted, “All is silver gray - placid and perfect with my art: the worse!”
He is married to a beautiful, much younger woman, who often goes out to meet her “cousin.”
Andrea admires his wife’s physical perfections, concluding sadly, “But had you . . . with these the same, but brought a mind!”
Paul reminds the Corinthians that first, they need willing minds.

Activity: Learn one new word each day. You might start with “byzantine.”
