On choosing a spouse....

"......let us ask how they will look in a few years from now or how they will adorn and bless our habitation. Let us ask if the understanding, united with that countenance, render its owner fit to be my companion and the instructor of my children? Will that temper patiently bear with my weaknesses, kindly consult my tastes, and affectionately study my comfort? Will those manners please me in solitude, as well as in society? Will those habits render my dwelling pleasant to me and to my friends? We must carefully consider these matters and hold our passions back so that we may take counsel with our judgment and suffer reason to talk with us in quiet contemplation."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
