Heart locket. (Stock image)

Paige, a SpouseBuzz reader, submitted this quote as her military wife mantra:  “Distance does to love what wind does to fire. It extinguishes the weak and feeds the strong.”

Love that.  Have seen that in action.  Plan to be whipped up into a blaze by distance every time.

Yet Paige’s mantra got us to thinking about other quotes we like about long distance love in military life.  Here are a few of our favorites:
