"...The wilderness, the mountains and valleys, and the pitfalls and the enemies which confront us on our adventures require the faith of Galahad, the sweetness of Gawain, the love of Launcelot, the emboldened strength of Tristram and the comforting Self-Assurance that we are pursuing beauty. How can anyone have in himself these four kinds of chivalry and still find nourishment for his self-assuring self without becoming, at times, embroiled, entangled, and unwisely engaged? When men have answered this question, Beauty will be the Handmaiden of Mankind and she will bring to artists what they desire in little things, and she will guide them unfailingly in their quest for the Larger Beauties and the Better Life. Be assured! That is my frequent blessing and to share it with both hands is the most important lesson of my life."
