  Sonnet 116
  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-fixèd mark,
  That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
  It is the star to every wandering 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.
  By William Shakespeare.
