They do not love that do not show their love.

William Shakespeare


The course of true love never did run smooth.

William Shakespeare


Love's gentle spring doth always fresh remain
William Shakespeare, Venus & Adonis


We should be woo'd and were not made to woo
William Shakespeare


Doubt thou the stars are fire;Doubt that the sun doth move;Doubt truth to be a liar;But never doubt I love.
- William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream


Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind;And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.


We that are true lovers run into strange capers; but as all is mortal in nature, so is all nature in love mortal in folly.
William Shakespeare, From As You Like It


To me, fair friend, you never can be old For as you were when first your eye I eyed, Such seems your beauty still.


One half of me is yours, the other half yours Mine own, I would say; but if mine, then yours,And so all yours!


Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date.


Love is not loveWhich alters when it alteration finds,Or Bends with the remover to remove.O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark,That looks on tempests and is never shaken.It is the star to every wandering bark,whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.


Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.


Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs,Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes,Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears.What is it else? A madness most discreet, A choking gall and a preserving sweet.


Love comforteth like sunshine after rain.
William Shakespeare, Venus & Adonis
