In your room, whatever you hang on your wall—
an image of a horse, a picture of the masters,
or even a sketch of St. Petersburg—
will become your self-portrait.

And on the street you walk, whatever you look at,
whichever tree, or whatever kind of person
you encounter, you too are one of them . . . 
you, then, have no basis to be self-righteous.
