No matter how strongly you pull someone onto the right track with ropes of love, you can’t take away free will. They may always turn their back and run away.

Love can fail, and we must know that it can fail. For if love was always reciprocated, there would never be unconditional love.

But you have done your part, you have shown love. And what is the reward of the mitzvah of love? That both of you rise higher, and the Infinite Light gains another window to shine into this world.

In other words, everything that really matters.
