“The first moves of a man into a love affair are bound to be physical. If his emotion is more than a passing lust, then the attractions of mind and spirit will follow later.” – BARBARA CARTLAND, Love, Life & Sex
“Physical love is an ephemeral spark designed to kindle in human hearts the flame of a more lasting love. It is the outer court of the temple.” – SABATIER
The strong physical desire that drives one into a relationship, leaving the person literally oblivious to any seeming dangers ahead, is often mistakenly interpreted as Love. The reality dawns when such feelings come crushing in the face of love's real tests - patience, tolerance, time, etc.
