"Some people are rusty. Their harsh, ungainly manners eat out whatever is good in their own character, and saw the very flesh off those that come near them. Some people are gilt, a very brilliant exterior they present; but the first brush and hard using rubs off the gilding, and reveals the base metal beneath. A third class are polished. The polish, indeed, is on the multifarious crosses of human life; the more it is rubbed the brighter it grows.'
