Paul Washer: The woman without discretion, even the most beautiful woman without discretion, is like a gold ring in a pigs snout. And young guys listen to me: If you are led into marriage because of the sensuality of the girl you will hate yourself in the end. You will hate yourself. But if you’re led into it by her virtue, her intelligence, her godliness, you will find a mate for life.

Tim Conway: Young men, we live in a world, even in the professing christian world, that tells you to chase beauty. And the Bible says: treat it as a common thing, treat it as unsubstantial, treat it as an empty thing, because it’s empty! If you chase beauty… I tell you many young men have lived to regret the decisions they made. You don’t realize, if you’re not married you do not realize what it is to get a bad wife or what it is to get a good wife. And if you chase beauty, and you end up getting beauty, and you get a godless women inside that beauty. Even if she’s a true christian, but she’s contentious, she’s unsanctified, she’s proud, she’s unsubmissive. You’re going to live to regret it. Young men, I know some of you are not hearing me, I know your not hearing me! Because there’s such a natural tendency to be drawn towards what is beautiful. But the Bible says: treat it as an empty thing, treat it as empty.
