There are four grades through which one develops in the art of personality.

  1. One grade is when a person has become thoughtful. Then he begins to observe his thoughts, to see his actions.
  2. The second grade is that not only he observes his thoughts and sees his actions, but is able to control them.
  3. The third grade is that a spontaneous outflow of sympathy comes from the person, that it is natural; that his attitude is outgoing, that his personality attracts and that his personality becomes a blessing.
  4. And the fourth grade is a grade where no effort has to be made by the artist to make the art of personality. In this grade the artist becomes art itself and whatever he does, it all becomes a beautiful picture.
