Love is not about finding the right person
Quote by Sam Keen: “We come to love not by finding a perfect person...”

Love is not just about finding the right person… ( Relationship Quotes )
If you are married and like most people, you married someone different from yourself. Perhaps you have heard the old expression, "Opposites attract. Unfortunately, opposites also attack! Why is that? In ancient Greek mythology, it was thought that the gods feared humans were too strong so they tore us in half at birth. Then, whether born male or female, we spent the rest of our life looking for our "other half" in order to be complete.
It's better to spend years finding the right person than to spend your whole life with the wrong person. Love isn't finding a perfect person. It's seeing an imperfect person perfectly. We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love. I am in search of some one to adore, and I must find one soon, for life without love is like a bottle without wine.
