Purity of heart and love
is all that counts in love
and all that makes up love
– there is no love where opportunity turns up
and fools you into calculation,
which immediately corrupts it
and turns it away to other forms
except sincerity, integrity and honesty,
and thus it even may turn into hate,
the very opposite of love;
which always is one-sided,
true and living only by its honesty.
If love is true, it’s better to abstain from it
and banish it forever
than risk having it defiled
by anything unworthy of its highest level,
if that once has been attained.
