There is a Greek myth about a sculptor named Pygmalion. He chiseled a statue of a perfect lady and then fell in love with it. The goddess of love was so impressed with the sculptor's love for the statue that she brought it to life. And they lived happily ever after.

George Bernard Shaw was so impressed with the myth that he wrote a play about a contemporary version of it called "Pygmalion." It was turned into a musical entitled "My Fair Lady." More recently, it was revised and updated again into a movie called "Pretty Woman."

The point of each of these - the myth, the play, and the movies - is that people can change. And the most transforming force in the world is love.
