William Shakespeare 15

“I would not wish any companion in the world but you.”

“Absence doth sharpen love, presence strengthens it; the one brings fuel, the other blows it till it burns clear”

“What is light, if Sylvia be not seen? What is joy if Sylvia be not by?”

“Love goes toward love”

“I’ll follow you and make a heaven out of hell, and I’ll die by your hand which I love so well”

“I will not be sworn but love may transform me to an oyster”

“Love is a smoke and is made with the fume of sighs”

“Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts”

“Her passions are made of nothing but the finest part of pure love”

William Shakespeare 14

“In thy youth wast as true a lover, As ever sighed upon a midnight pillow”

“Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds”

“She will die if you love her not, And she will die ere she might make her love known”

“This bud of love by summer’s ripening breath, May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet”

William Shakespeare 12

My love is as a fever, longing still
For that which longer nurseth the disease,
Feeding on that which doth preserve the ill,
Th’ uncertain sickly appetite to please.
My reason, the physician to my love,
Angry that his prescriptions are not kept,
Hath left me, and I desperate now approve
Desire is death, which physic did except.
Past cure I am, now reason is past care,
And frantic-mad with evermore unrest;
My thoughts and my discourse as mad men’s are,
At random from the truth vainly expressed.
For I have sworn thee fair, and thought thee bright,
Who art as black as hell, as dark as night.
My love is as a fever

William Shakespeare 9

Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die. Take him, and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of heaven so fine, That all the world will be in love with night, And pay no worship to the garish sun.
