Knowledge Of A Lifetime

John Ruskin: The labour of two days is that for which you ask two hundred guineas?

Whistler: No.  I ask it for the knowledge I have gained in the work of a lifetime.

-- James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834 - 1903), American-born, British-based painter and etcher, Whistler v. Ruskin (1878)
