"Be unwavering in your resolve on the spiritual path. Don’t go only half-way or three quarters of the way; go all the way [to God-realization and liberation of consciousness]. Let your devotion to God be like a wood fire that burns long and steady; not like a straw fire that burns brightly, then quickly goes out. "

–Paramahansa Yogananda
