the difference between something you want and something you love can be illustrated by how you treat a flower
when you want something, you'll take it for yourself
and that flower then exists as an extension of you,
it's beauty measured by how beautiful you'll allow it to be.

but when you love something
you discover an appreciation for everything it is
knowing something so beautiful, so vast, could never belong to you
seeing it's light and knowing it would be selfish to hold it hostage from the world
