Don't Shoot the Messenger

Delivering the Good, the True & the Beautiful

Never Cease Chiseling Your Statue

This is such a beautiful thought – short, sweet and to the point. I thought you might enjoy it!

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…Never cease chiseling your statue.

Plotinus – 3rd Century A.D.
