The pearl, a symbol of wisdom, owes its existence to the flaw
at its heart, the speck of grit around which the layers of
pearl essence form. The metamorphosis takes many years in
deep, dark, dangerous waters, symbolic of the unconscious.

for one's self.
The great epoch of our lives are at the points when we
gain the courage to re-baptize our badness as the best in
– Friedrich Nietzsche
