The spiritual artist-the man who paints Christ in his soul-wants no solitary niche in the temple of fame. He would not like to hear anyone say, ‘He is the first of his profession; there is not one that can hold a candle to him.’ He would be very sad to be thus distinguished in his profession of Christ, marked out as a solitary figure. The gladdest moment to him will always be the moment when the cry is heard, ‘Thy brother is coming up the ladder also; thy brother will share the inheritance with thee.’
