I was thinking about this quote recently because (a) I wanted to use it in my sig and (b) in Drawing I a few days ago, the Teaching Asst mentioned one artist who said that you can't claim to know how to draw until the stack of your drawings is shoulder high, and someone else had a quote that you can't claim to know how to draw until you can draw a man who has jumped out of a window and complete the drawing before he hits the ground.

I like that this thread is picking up steam. Hopefully some more folks for whom photo history is "their thing" will contribute.
