What You Are and Will Be

I love you for what you are, but I
  love you
yet more for what you are going to
I love you not so much for your
as for your ideals.
I pray for your desires that they may
  be great,
rather than for your satisfactions,
which may be so hazardously little.
You are going forward toward
  something great.
I am on the way with you,
and therefore I love you.

~Carl Sandburg
