"How hard it is to keep our hearts from going too far even in honest affections toward the creature, while we are so backward to love God, who should have all the heart and soul and might. Too strong love to any, though it be good in the kind, may be sinful and hurtful in the degree. It will turn too many of your thoughts from God, and they will be too often running after the beloved creature.... It will increase your sufferings by involving ing you in all the dangers and troubles of those whom you over- love." -- Richard Baxter
