You get the point

This is a little story I heard recently about the painter/sculptor Giacometti, whom I admit, I had never heard of previously. Nevertheless it goes something like this: It seems as if someone asked him if his barn that held his paintings as well as his two chickens was burning, which would he take to safety. He answered, "The chickens of course, because life is always more valuable than art."
