From Letters, Substantially as Published

Since man is the image and likeness of God, have we not found, in the acknowledgment of that fact, a standard by which self-knowledge may be revealed and self-control practiced? However limited may be our acquaintance with God, whose image and likeness man is, we are more or less aware of certain qualities that express Him, and thus we can begin by recognizing those same qualities as ours. No one would dispute that justice, integrity, usefulness, activity, wisdom, life, love, and holiness belong to God. If we begin practicing these qualities we shall, in the degree that we succeed, become acquainted with our true selves; and self-knowledge, let us remember, is the basis on which we are to know our true character, and accordingly build character in our daily experience.
