I'm currently reading James White's Scripture Alone and I could paste all kinds of insightful quotes here that would be sure to not only grab your attention but in and of themselves be excellent representative quotes of the entire book. I could have done the same with the last two John MacArthur books as well.
"Brothers, it falls to us to be the initial risk takers in matters of the heart. Headship means being the one to go ahead and ask. It is ours as men to suffer the embarrassment of rejection if need be. It is our role to initiate. Get to it right merrily. We are the hunters. They are the quarry. It is for men to strike out into the forest and look. It is for women to crack the twigs and stir the leaves so we know where to find them." - John Ensor, Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart
UPDATE: Thanks to Amanda in the comments, be sure to check this out:
"How does a woman appropriately, biblically, humbly, and submissively go about cracking the twigs and stirring the leaves?"
