    Don't confuse love and desire...

    “Love is not selective, desire is selective. In love there are no strangers. When the centre of selfishness is no longer, all desires for pleasure and fear of pain cease; one is no longer interested in being happy; beyond happiness there is pure intensity, inexhaustible energy, the ecstasy of giving from a perennial source.”

    Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, I Am That: Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

    Don't confuse love and desire. They are two very different things. They may exist together, but desire is no substitute for love.

    Desire is like a river, love is more like the ocean.

    Desire is never the same. It ebbs and flows. Love doesn't vary.

    Desire excludes. It picks and chooses. Love includes -- it finds a place for everything.

    Desire is temporary. Love is eternal.

    Desire is never satisfied for long. Love is always full, always complete, yet every expanding, ever growing.

    Desire can succeed or fail. Love never fails.
