I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.
—Jesus Christ, Revelation 2.4
We often go from love to ambition, but rarely return from ambition to love.
—François de La Rochefoucauld, Maximes, §490
Some men sacrifice everything for what they love; others, what they love for everything. How many of your acquaintances might fall into the first extreme? How many into the second?
