If we think of love as in itself the answer to all the problems human beings face, we will constantly be disappointed by it. If we search for perfection in a mate and refuse to be satisfied by anything less than that, we will never really experience sexual or marital love.

Since love does not simply happen, as I have been suggesting, it must emerge as the saving remnant of our endless yearning for happy and meaningful lives.
-- Irving Singer

Love is growing old together, contentedly. Sharing a sunset as you've shared your lives. Happy that your worlds are entwined.
-- Jan Brazill
