For instance, a musical and melodious voice imparteth life to an attracted heart but lureth toward lust those souls who are engulfed in passion and desire.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Bahá’í World Faith, p. 366)
. . we must reach a spiritual plane where God comes first and great human passions are unable to turn us away from Him. All the time we see people who either through the force of hate or the passionate attachment they have to another person, sacrifice principle or bar themselves from the path of God.
(Shoghi Effendi, Lights of Guidance, p. 512)
