Excerpt from The Three Paths, Vol. 2 of 2
And it is not from the marble only that we seek to disengage the Idea. The same restless yearning is felt by the heart as by the mind. Love and Art both strive to disengage their own inner ideal from things external to themselves. Art... com poses its sonnet before the block of marble whose rude unshapen mass conceals as yet the form of deathless majesty and beauty which glows distinct and perfect in the dreams of genius, and which the artist hand shall shape and fashion to a statue, which, if it fall short of its creator's conception, shall still embody for his.
