Curse of the blue Tattoo, L. A Meyer (Click on the picture to be taken to the website)
"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 tepests 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... Shakespeare~
'When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state, And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries, And look upon myself, and curse my fate, Wishing me like to one more rich in hope, Featur'd like him, like him with friends possess'd, Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope, With what i most enjoy contented least: Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising, Haply i think on thee, and then my state Like to the lark at break of day arising from sullen earth Sings hymns at heaven's gate; For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings That then i scorn to change my state with kings.'
