Had we but world enough, and time,
This coyness, Lady, were no crime.
We would sit down and think which way
To walk, and pass our long love's day.
My love is of a birth as rare
As 'tis for object strange and high;
It was begotten by Despair
No creature loves an empty space;
Their bodies measure out their place.
Love you ten years before the Flood,
And you should, if you please, refuse
Till the conversion of the Jews.
My vegetable love should grow
Vaster than empires and more slow.
As lines, so loves oblique, may well Themselves in every angle greet; But ours, so truly parallel, Though infinite, can never meet. Therefore the love which us doth bind But fate so enviously debars, Is the conjunction of the mind, And opposition of the stars.
Quote of the day
The male — I have found — is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness and kindness, can be trained to do most things.
