“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” (Robert F. Kennedy) “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” (Napoleon Hill) “It's not how far you fall, but how high you bounce that counts.” (Zig Ziglar) "It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success." (J.K Rowling)
I believe love does not stop; however, caring for someone can. Sometimes we put too much time and energy into people who do not appreciate it or reciprocate it. Some people push and push until we have to give in and acknowledge we can love that person but we cannot continue to revolve our world Round him/her.
Sometimes "real" is our desire for a particular and preferred frame of reference to materialize. Our expectations may cause us to spend years believing the frame will be realized only because we once had it and want it again. Real is when we cease to wait for something to frame up. Waiting =/= Living. ~Zest of Life
