Timothy J. Keller
“...Singles, too, must see the penultimate status of marriage. If single Christians don't develop a deeply fulfilling love relationship with Jesus, they will put too much pressure on their DREAM of marriage, and that will create pathology in their lives as well.”
Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

Kate Bolick
“The question I’d long posed to myself—whether to be married or to be single—is a false binary. The space in which I’ve always wanted to live—indeed, where I have spend my adulthood—isn’t between those two poles, but beyond it. The choice between being married versus being single doesn’t even belong here in the twenty-first century.”
Kate Bolick, Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own

L.M. Montgomery
“I don't say Valancy deliberately murdered these lovers as she outgrew them. One simply faded away as another came. Things are very convenient in this respect in Blue Castles.”
L.M. Montgomery, The Blue Castle

“The world always said to just be yourself, but it turned out when Evelyn was herself, no guys were at all interested, so she was left with games of make-believe, expressing enthusiasm for whatever the men wanted to do, be it rock climbing or going to a cheese-beer pairing or a Knicks game.”
Stephanie Clifford, Everybody Rise

Elizabeth George

Osayi Emokpae Lasisi
“Let us crush these so-called biological clocks that give us nothing but fear, and encourage us to make stupid decisions. Let us crush these biological clocks that hurt us and rob us of the fabulous lives that Jesus died to give us. These clocks that not only hurt us, but hurt many generations after us.

It is time. We need you.”
Osayi Osar-Emokpae, Impossible Is Stupid

Kemi Sogunle
“If your relationship is draining your energy, making you lose yourself and taking your attention away from God, then you are not in a relationship but a cult. You are busy creating an idol (mini-God) for yourself.”
Kemi Sogunle

L.M. Montgomery
“Don't be fretting...about me marrying. Marrying's a trouble and not marrying's a trouble and I sticks to the trouble I knows.”
L.M. Montgomery, Pat of Silver Bush

“Sometimes the church talks about singleness as if it were similar to being chosen for Hufflepuff by the Magic Sorting Hat in Harry Potter. The good news is that you still are at Hogwarts, but the bad news is that pretty much everyone else there will avoid you and make it clear they feel sad for you and would never, ever want to be you.”
Sammy Rhodes, This Is Awkward: How Life's Uncomfortable Moments Open the Door to Intimacy and Connection

Osayi Emokpae Lasisi
“But if as you read this book you're saying to yourself: "I'd rather be miserably married than be alone." Well young lady, take out your clown shoes and buckle your seat belt - it's going to be a very bumpy one-woman circus.”
Osayi Osar-Emokpae, Impossible Is Stupid

Louisa May Alcott
“I'm happy as I am, and love my liberty too well to be in a hurry to give it up for any mortal man.”
Louisa May Alcott, Good Wives

“A Lady in Waiting...

Recklessly abandons herself to the Lordship of Christ

Diligently uses her single days

Trusts God with unwavering faith

Demonstrates virtue in daily life

Loves God with undistracted devotion

Stands for physical and emotional purity

Lives in security

Responds to life in contentment

Makes choices based on her convictions

Waits patiently for God to meet her needs”
Jackie Kendall, Lady in Waiting: Becoming God's Best While Waiting for Mr. Right

Ravi Zacharias
“Think long and hard whether you have reached that mature stage of selflessness for this one you think you love so much. The love you enjoy will be the best thing that ever happened to you, but it will cost you your independence.... The responsibility of marriage and family demands time, and when we cheat on that, we rob ourselves of the investment returns.”
Ravi Zacharias, I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah: Moving from Romance to Lasting Love

Ravi Zacharias
“Marriage brings face to face two people committed to God whose face is distinctively revealed in each as they see each other in the light of God, shining on each countenance. God brought them close to each other because each was the other's answer from God, to rescue them from being alone.”
Ravi Zacharias, I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah: Moving from Romance to Lasting Love

“Your longing for an intimate relationship with another person is something you were created to feel. It doesn’t mean that you are unholy or that you haven’t let Jesus fill your heart the way he should. It means you’re human, created in the image of God, a God who loves, who connects, and who longs for relationship himself.
Jesus can never be your boyfriend or girlfriend because we was never intended to be. A significant part of your heart was designed specifically for just him, but there is a part of your heart that was designed specifically for others.”
Debra Fileta, True Love Dates: Your Indispensable Guide to Finding the Love of your Life

Louisa May Alcott
“There should always be one old maid in a family.”
Louisa May Alcott

“But it is strange and I think quite wrong that conservative Protestantism, which used to repudiate the tradition of celibacy, is now assuming that celibacy is the right way of life for a large number of men as a matter of course simply because they aren't 'heterosexual' - that is, because they lack the commitment-phobic lust that prompts other men towards all attractive women regardless of marriage covenants. Similarly, Roman Catholic authority, which used to teach that a special grace was required for a life of celibacy, now teaches that celibacy is the right way of life for such men as a matter of course, as though they were incapable of giving and receiving the love and friendship that many women seek from marriage far more than anything else”
Jonathan Mills, Love, Covenant & Meaning

“Single Christians living in purity and community are billboards for the sufficiency of Jesus”
Peter Hubbard

“Sometimes while waiting for God's promises to come to pass, we messed up things and go into so many troubles, but God’s mercy has never failed in bringing us out of them all.”
Bamigboye Olurotimi

Lev Grossman
“Plum's own romantic history so far had been pretty limited, with minimal drama. It was one area where she felt comfortable lagging behind her peers. But she prided herself on her powerful philosophical insights into other people's relationships.”
Lev Grossman, The Magician's Land
