Famous Quotes:

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Let me not to the marriage of true minds / Admit impediments.

Love is not love / Which alters when it alteration finds.

When in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes / I all alone beweep my outcast state.

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun.

Love is too young to know what conscience is.

Thou blind fool, Love, what dost thou to mine eyes.

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see.

To me, fair friend, you never can be old.

When to the sessions of sweet silent thought / I summon up remembrance of things past.

My love is as a fever, longing still.

Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore.

O, for my sake do you with Fortune chide.

When my love swears that she is made of truth.

So are you to my thoughts as food to life.

When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see.

Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks.

What’s in the brain that ink may character.

Those lips that Love’s own hand did make.

No longer mourn for me when I am dead.

Why didst thou promise such a beauteous day?

Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing.

Tired with all these, for restful death I cry.

How like a winter hath my absence been.

So you o’er-green my bad, my good allow?

The worst was this; my love was my decay.

To me, fair friend, you never can be old.

That time of year thou mayst in me behold.

Whence hast thou this becoming of things ill.
