  • To pursue love is to pursue God.
  • Life’s greatest discovery is in learning how to give and receive love properly.
  • Without love, life can become exceedingly bleak.
  • Most people in general have spent more time perfecting technology and less time studying love.
  • Relationships are never static.
  • Dreams can be altered but not destroyed.
  • Covenant love is conscious love. It is intentional love. It is a commitment to love no matter what.
  • Passion must be fed and nurtured. It will not continue to flow simply because we remain in the relationship.
  • Girls are people who like to be affirmed verbally, just as men like to be affirmed verbally.
  • We need not be enslaved by experiences of the past. We can learn to love even when we have not received love. In fact, learning to love others is the fastest way to receive love.
  • The choice to love is the choice to take initiative.
  • Love is the attitude which wishes good things for the other person.
  • Love stimulates love.
  • Mature love speaks kindly.
  • We cannot erase the past; We can only confess it and agree that it was wrong.
  • The best thing we can do with past failures is to let them be history.
  • A gift is not a gift when it is given to smooth ruffled feathers.
  • You cannot force someone to accept an expression of love. You can only offer it. If it is not accepted, you must respect the other person’s decision.
  • All of us blossom when we feel loved and wither when we do not feel loved.
  • Never give advice until you are sure the other person wants it.
  • Withhold touches and isolate and raise doubts about your love.
  • We can’t always change events, but we can survive if we feel loved.
  • Crisis provide a unique opportunity for expressing love. Your tender touches will be remembered long after the crisis has passed.
  • We love others in the manner in which we would like to be loved.
  • Love breaks down barriers, leaps over walls, and seeks the well-being of another.
  • Love is the attitude that says, “I choose to look out for your interest. How may I serve you?”
  • Because we are human, we desperately crave love.
  • Feeling loved makes the difference in the way a person responds to a legitimate request.
  • The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
  • Our differences are numerous, but our basic needs are the same.
  • All of us are in process.
  • If we are overly withdrawn we cannot minister freely to others. If, on the other hand, we are overly talkative we may overwhelm those we would like to help.
  • What we dislike in others is often a weakness in our own lives.
  • Change takes effort, but it is effort well invested.
  • True greatness is expressed in serving.
  • Empathetic listening is an awesome medication for the hurting heart.
  • When the euphoria has run its course, we must take responsibility for our behavior. Love at this point, becomes a choice.
  • When people do not convey love in a way that is perceived as love, their efforts, though sincere, are somewhat wasted.
  • Do not allow past failures to cause you to give up. Losing the battle doesn’t mean the war is lost.
  • God forgives, but the natural results of our behaviors are not totally removed.
  • Marriage has no closets for skeletons.
  • Love is something you do for someone else, not something you do for yourself.
  • Love doesn’t erase the past, but it makes the future different.
  • It takes time and the conscious choice to listen.
  • A gift is a gift only when given as a genuine expression of love, not as an effort to cover over past failures.
