Don’t Just Like

LIKE is watered-down love.

Like is mediocre.

Like is the wishy-washy emotion of the content.

Athletes don’t do it for the like of a sport.

Artists don’t suffer for the like of art.

There are no I LIKE N.Y. T-shirts.

And Romeo didn’t just like Juliet.

Love. Now that’s powerful stuff.

Love changes things,

upsets things,

Conquers things.

Love is at the root of everything good that

has ever happened and willl ever happen

LOVE what you do
