Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

305. Of the Visage of Things


OF the visages of things—And of piercing through to the accepted hells beneath; 
Of ugliness—To me there is just as much in it as there is in beauty—And now the ugliness of human beings is acceptable to me; 
Of detected persons—To me, detected persons are not, in any respect, worse than undetected persons—and are not in any respect worse than I am myself; 
Of criminals—To me, any judge, or any juror, is equally criminal—and any reputable person is also—and the President is also.
