He was doing a workshop, and after about half an hour of wrestling with about 100 pounds of clay he had a 4' cylinder that he'd cut, whacked, and otherwise mutilated.  He stepped back from it, looked at it for a minute and said, "You know… something that ugly shouldn't be that big".  I think of that every time I see something really big.
