    Withdraw into yourself and look. And if you do not find yourself beautiful yet, act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful.; he cuts away

      Withdraw into yourself and look. And if you do not find yourself beautiful yet,
      act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful.; he cuts away
      here, he smoothes there, he makes this line lighter, this other purer, until a
      lovely face has grown upon his work. So do you also; cut away excessive,
      straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labor to
      make all one glow of beauty and never cease chiseling your statue, until there
      shall shine out on you from it the godlike splendor of virtue, until you shall
      see the perfect goodness surely established in the stainless shrine.
