(About Beauty, Name)

How sweet and lovely dost thou make the shame
Which, like a canker in the fragrant rose,
Doth spot the beauty of thy budding name!

(Sonnet 95: How Sweet And Lovely Dost Thou Make The Shame)

More Quotes from William Shakespeare:

If your business
Seek me out, and that way I am wife in,
Out with it boldly; truth loves open dealing.
William Shakespeare

I heard of one of them no
longer than yesterday: a very honest woman, but something given
to lie, as a woman should not do but in the way of honesty; how
she died of the biting of it, what pain she felt- truly she makes
a very good report o' th' worm.
William Shakespeare

Appear it to your mind
That, through the sight I bear in things to come,
I have abandon'd Troy, left my possession,
Incurr'd a traitor's name, expos'd myself
From certain and possess'd conveniences
To doubtful fortunes, sequest'ring from me all
That time, acquaintance, custom, and condition,
Made tame and most familiar to my nature;
And here, to do you service, am become
As new into the world, strange, unacquainted-
I do beseech you, as in way of taste,
To give me now a little benefit
Out of those many regist'red in promise,
Which you say live to come in my behalf.
William Shakespeare

Thy sin's not accidental, but a trade.
William Shakespeare

Besides these, other bars he lays before me,
My riots past, my wild societies;
And tells me 'tis a thing impossible
I should love thee but as a property.
William Shakespeare

So 'a cried out 'God, God, God!
William Shakespeare
