power of judgment - da Vinci
I just found a great quote - so true to so many things costuming inculded...

"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgment. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and a lack of harmony or portion is more readily seen."
- Leonardo da Vinci

Its great advice in so many aspects of creativity. One of my professors basically told me the same thing last spring--I like how da Vinci said it best though. ;)

I like that a lot - quotes always have more weight when they're said by someone so talented!
