"So will I grow, so live, so die, my lord..."
~Hermia (A Midsummer Night's Dream)
There is so much passion in these words.
A daughter speaking to her father about who she loves and who she wants to flee from.
But these words on their own also speak inspiration.
Inspiration to ignore what the rest of the world is telling us to do and follow our heart.
I see persistence encouraged here.
More exists though, it doesn't have to be a selfish endeavor -- it may be about being on fire and holding onto that fire...
Think how this relates to those lines:
--And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
--For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."
Romans 12:2 & Romans 8:15
