Love as a Book (Quote of the Day)

It's Sunday, and Valentine's Day no less, so here's another quote. This one comes from what I consider the most classic love story of all time...

This is Lady Capulet speaking to Juliet:

What say you? can you love the gentleman?
This night you shall behold him at our feast;
Read o'er the volume of young Paris' face,
And find delight writ there with beauty's pen;
Examine every married lineament,
And see how one another lends content
And what obscured in this fair volume lies
Find written in the margent of his eyes.
This precious book of love, this unbound lover,
To beautify him, only lacks a cover:
The fish lives in the sea, and 'tis much pride
For fair without the fair within to hide:
That book in many's eyes doth share the glory,
That in gold clasps locks in the golden story;
So shall you share all that he doth possess,
By having him, making yourself no less.

-Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Enjoy the day off tomorrow, for those of you that have a day off tomorrow!
