Shakespeare  
From rosewildeirish amongst others, if you see this on your flist, quote some Shakespeare.


Sonnet 116 - Love is not Love which Alters...
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 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.

If you quoted that from memory, I'm gonna be really impressed. ;)

yes. all of it. completely. *g*

No the only part i always remember is: "Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove." At the risk of sounding totally sappy, that is incredibly beautiful.
