- "Each man bears “a balance within his breast”;
- each weighs for himself his karma.
- And so now liberally, the living raiment of beauty is offered to all.
- And each living rational being, may receive from it a garment,
- and cast away from him that ridiculous fear which whispers, “This is not for you.”
- One must be rid of that gray fear, mediocrity.
- Because all is for you if you manifest the wish from a pure source.
- But remember,
- flowers do not blossom on ice.
- Yet how many icicles do we strew,
- benumbing our worthiest striving through menial cowardice."
