As a consequence of what we said before you can see the necessity of perseverance. Inconstancy springs up from want of order. Are you not persuaded that perseverance is an essential element of love? Love which lasts but a few days, love which is fickle and whimsical is not real love.
Take then, the pulse of your perseverance and you will be able to measure your love. You will then realize that in order to be constant you must abide by a rule and be subject to order. Make that the test of your loyalty.
