The renowned Quaker scholar Rufus Jones was speaking of the importance of having a radiant countenance. After his address, a woman "with an almost unbelievably plain face" came up and asked him what he would do if he had a face like hers.
He replied, "While I have troubles of my own of that kind, I've discovered that if you light it up from within, any old face you have is good enough."
