Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. 
Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another’s heart, 
or its flame burns low.

H.W. Beecher

'When you commit to doing something, you make a promise to yourself. 
And when you break that promise out of laziness, discouragement, or fear, 
you are only cheating yourself. 
You are not “getting away with something.” 
You are only getting away from your own potential. 
When you commit to making your dream come true, that is the promise 
you simply decide to never, ever break. 
It doesn’t matter how many times you get discouraged, or exhausted, or frustrated, 
you just remember that you have not given yourself the option to quit. 
That is what commitment is — when the idea of ever stopping your efforts simply doesn’t exist. You have infinite patience and resilience because there is no other option. 
You have the ability to bear the pain and frustration because you must find a way to beat it. It doesn’t mean it won’t feel hard to press on — it might feel impossible,
 and yet you still find a way to keep going. 
You simply always press on. 
At a certain point, all your effort and energy and power is only directed towards your dream, and you no longer have to waste any energy on trying to motivate yourself to keep going.'

People are rivers, always ready to move from one state of being into another. 
It is not fair, to treat people as if they are finished beings. 
Everyone is always becoming and unbecoming.
