Sonnet to Love

“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 tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wand’ring barque,
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 no man ever loved.”

~William Shakespeare




Lest you think that Romance has gotten the better of me, please remember as do I through many trials and expensive cohabitations and some matrimonial exercises the following Physicist’s view of Love and marriage.

And hope you take this with a pinch of salt because we are all fully aware of Albert’s notorious philandering wisdom and low emotional intelligence:

“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”
~Albert Einstein
