Sonnet 116

Those that love the movie Sense & Sensibility, will find these words very familiar. It was such an adorable part with Marianne and Willoughby.


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 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 no man ever loved.

-William Shakespeare

Happy Thursday!


  1. That's a good one! I know I have seen that movie (I think?) but it's been so long I can't remember it clearly.

  2. I love that! I can picture the scene in my mind. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. Oh Good Lord. . . If I only had a brain! I can't remember. . . Do we like Willoughby, or was he the scroundral? Now I'll have to take a Sunday afternoon and suffer through that movie again . . .What torture!

    Give me some P&P trivia. . .just watched it again two weeks ago.

  4. Hi Jen & Michelle!

    Hi Liz! We liked Willoughby at first, but then he became such a weasel. ;P

    I love p&p, too!!

  5. Adays of old. So beautiful in their words. But man, can you imagine how long it took them to say something simple? lol. Like that whole thing in your post was like, I love you so much every day but what's for dinner? lol.

  6. Hahaha- Sheila that cracked me up! =)
