Shaping the Man – Strength Magazine – January, 1927

Shape that is just another name for beauty,” a prominent European sculptor once said to me during a conversation, “It is the one thing every sculptor tries to achieve, and his greatest reward is success.” This is a decided truism and the only difference between the sculptor and I, as I see it, is that what the sculptor tries to achieve in stone, I strive to achieve with the human body, and I feel that my reward also is measured more or less by the extent of my success. Just how you feel about the human body I do not know, but speaking for myself, think it is the most beautiful living thing on the top of this green earth.
