It’s Valentine’s Day. Guys, if you want to impress your girl this year with something deeper than a card signed with XOs, let Shakespeare finish it for you. Or for a real treat, quote him over dinner. Remember flowers wilt and die quickly but a heartfelt quote will live forever.
Here are some of my favorite Shakespeare love quotes
Doubt that the stars are fire, Doubt that the sun doth move his aides, Doubt truth to be a liar, But never doubt I love. Hamlet
My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite. Romeo & Juliet
Love is a smoke and is made with the fume of sighs . Romeo & Juliet
I know no ways to mince it in love, but directly to say ‘I love you’. Henry V
Speak low if you speak love. Much Ado about Nothing
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind. Midsummer’s Night Dream
Hear my soul speak. Of the very instant that I saw you, Did my heart fly at your service. The Tempest
I would not wish any companion in the world but you. The Tempest
Love sought is good, but given unsought is better. Twelfth Night
Happy Valentine’s Day!
