William Shakespeare and Love

Here are some of my favorite quotes on love from William Shakespeare; I hope that you enjoy them as much as I.

“Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?”

“Love is not love
Which 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.”

“Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.”
Romeo & Juliet

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”

“Time is very slow for those who wait,
Very fast for those who are scared.
Very long for those who lament,
Very short for those who celebrate.
But for those who love time is eternal.”

“If you love and get hurt, love more.
If you love more and hurt more, love even more.
If you love even more and get hurt even more, love some more until it hurts no more…”

“Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;
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…”
Romeo & Juliet
