Since you know you cannot see yourself
So well as by reflection, I, your glass,
Will modestly discover to yourself
That of yourself which yet you know not of.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Cassius, in Julius Caesar, act 1, sc. 2, l. 67-70.
Telling Brutus he can, like a mirror ("glass") reveal discreetly ("modestly discover") what Brutus fails to understand about himself.
