"finish" a piece of work

To finish a work? To finish a picture? What nonsense! To finish it means to be through with it, to kill it, to rid it of its soul, to give it its final blow the coup de grace for the painter as well as for the picture.

  1. I wish I could write that in my coursework and still pass the module!

    To finish a work could mean progress.
    To let a work remain in a certain status could mean development.

    Progress brings you from one locus to another – development may bring you on further, higher levels.

    If the target is just to finish, e. g. for an examination, then development might be missed.
    If the target goes beyond finishing the work, then more is asked but usually more comes back: development.

    In today’s rush many people concentrate too much on finishing something and not on the growing process that might lead beyond.
