â€œThey spoil every romance by trying to make itÂ last forever.â€ Oscar Wilde There is no cruise control when it comes to healthy relationships. â€œMost of these studies have focused on display behaviors that characterize pair formation or mate choice â€” all these processes that interest people working on the evolutionary aspect of sexual selection. We forgot to think about what was going on after pair formation.â€ Clementine Vignal, sensory ecologist 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a â€œBut Paul is plainly sayingâ€”look at his wordsâ€”that it is love that does these things, not us, and that what we are to do is to â€˜pursue loveâ€™ (1 Cor. 14:1). As we â€˜catchâ€™ love, we then find that these things are after all actually being done by us. These things, these godly actions and behaviors, are the result of dwelling in love. We have become the kind of person who is patient, kind, free of jealousy, and so on.â€ Dallas Willard, The Divine Conspiracy 1 Corinthians 7:13-16 â€œLove does not consist of gazing at each other, but looking outward in the same direction.â€ Anoine de Saint-Exupery â€œLove is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.â€ Bruce Lee
