Thurston, Ernest Temple: David and Jonathan. v1. 8 May 2016

Ernest Temple Thurston (September 23, 1879 – March 19, 1933) was an Anglo-Irish poet, playwright and author.

Extract
LIFE or Fate or Destiny—call it any one of the many names that happen to fit your terminology—has a subtle method of concealing its purpose. Speech and the accompanying veneer of civilization which, age by age, generation by generation, are coated over the real impulsory instincts, have succeeded in varnishing our true selves out of recognition. It is as though we were like one of those so-called old masters to be seen in picture framers’ windows. Old masters, restored, so you read on the printed card. Beneath that card is a canvas, half of which is covered by an apparently old painting, the head of a woman or man. The other half is that head restored with all the modem paint, all the modem varnish—restored, indeed, in the sense that it is made new, but no more like the original painting than a pot of paint is like a work of art.
