And truly not the morning sun of heaven
Better becomes the grey cheeks of the east,
Nor that full star that ushers in the even
Doth half that glory to the sober west
As those two mourning eyes become thy face.
(Sonnet 132: Thine Eyes I Love, And They, As Pitying Me)
More Quotes from William Shakespeare:In youth when I did love, did love,
Methought it was very sweet;
To contract- O- the time for- a- my behove,
O, methought there- a- was nothing- a- meet.
Woe to the land that's govern'd by a child.
On thy love, I charge thee.
MenCan counsel and speak comfort to that griefWhich they themselves not feel.
This is the night; That either makes me or fordoes me quite.
Be bloody, bold, and resolute laugh to scorn the power of man.
