Smart Quote: John Eldredge

“When it comes to loving a woman, the great divide lies between men as lovers and men as consumers. Does he seek her out, long for her, because he really yearns for her to meet some need in his life—a need for validation (she makes him feel like a man), or mercy, or simple sexual gratification? That man is a consumer. The lover, on the other hand, wants to fight for her—he wants to protect her, make her life better, wants to fill her heart in every way he can… Having his own heart awakened, he wants to know and love and free her heart.” —John Eldredge
