Quote of the Evening Prowl

"A true wife makes a man's life nobler, stronger, grander, by the omnipotence of her love 'turning all the forces of manhood upward and heavenward.' While she clings to him in holy confidence and loving dependence she brings out in him whatever is nobles and richest in his being. She inspires him with her courage and earnestness. She beautifies his life. She softens whatever is rude and harsh in his habits or his spirit. She clothes him with the gentler graces of refined and cultured manhood. While she yields to him and never disregards his lightest wish, she is really his queen, ruling his whole life and leading him onward and upward in every proper path. -JR Miller

Wow. I mean, what can I say?

Except, a woman can only have such a powerful love if she is first and foremost centered in God, and a fervent seeker of virtue. And of course, a man can only be responsive to her love if he is also willing to seek the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. Well, as far as it concerns me, I shall chase after virtue with all my heart. Come on Ladies. Let's inspire our men to STAND and be counted.
