GUEST,freda BS: A Proposal, Regarding Marriage (24) RE: BS: A Proposal, Regarding Marriage 05 May 04


CXVI

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. 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 tempest and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error, and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor man ever loved.

these thoughts in Shakespeare's sonnet CXVI talk about the commitment and depth of love over time.

it's clear that anyone who can make such a commitment, whoever to, is to be respected.
