Much depends in this life upon one's ability to see things
Grand Rapids (Mich.) Herald
Much depends in this life upon one's ability to see things. Beauty is everywhere; but it is often unseen. Only the artist can see beauty in that which to other's eyes appears ordinary and uncouth. The beauty is revealed to him. He puts his vision into the picture. Then all can see it.
And there is also a beauty in humanity that only the right-seeing can find. To the unseeing eye the exterior of a man may lack all marks of goodness or refinement. At the same time he who believes in and loves the divinity that is in man will see in the same person something that is fine.
That is one of the great things about Jesus of Nazareth. He saw what others failed to see. He saw beneath the homely, rugged faces of some Galilean fishermen types of goodness and greatness which the world had not seen. Also he saw what he had in himself. That is to say, the artist sees beauty because he has a beautiful soul. Christ Jesus saw beauty and truth and love because these qualities were in himself.
