Love can fail, and we must know it can fail. For if love was always reciprocated, how could there ever be sincere love?
Rather, every person retains his free will. No matter how strong you pull with cords of love in the right direction, he may always turn his back and run away.
But you have done your part, you have shown love. And what is the reward for that love? It is the elevation of your soul, and his soul, and the drawing of the Infinite Light upon all the community of all the world.
