Quotes About Love Endures

"The fact of that devotion is nothing less than sacrifice. The only good of which mortals are capable of love. To even begin to do good, one must be willing to go beyond oneself. All things made by man perish. All words scatter into the emptiness that is the future. Only love endures. Love for what is. Not for what was or could be. Love for what is—that alone is true love. That alone the future cannot dissolve. For that love is God." - Author: A.A. Attanasio

Quotes About Bible Companionship

"When God brought the first man his spouse, he brought him not just a lover but the friend his heart had been seeking. Proverbs 2:17 speaks of ones spouse as your "allup," a unique word that the lexicons define as your "special confidant" or "best friend." In an age where women were often seen as the husbands property, and marriages were mainly business deals and transactions seeking to increase the familys social status and security, it was startling for the Bible to describe a spouse in this way. But in todays society, with its emphasis on romance and sex, it is just as radical to insist that your spouse should be your best friend, though for a different reason. In tribal societies, romance doesnt matter as much as social status, and in individualistic Western societies, romance and great sex matter far more than anything else. The Bible, however, without ignoring the importance of romance, puts great emphasis on marriage as companionship." - Author: Timothy Keller
