Romantic Lines from William Shakespeare
1. Romeo and Juliet
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.
2. The Tempest
Hear my soul speak:
The very instant that I saw you, did
My heart fly to your service.
3. As You Like It
If thou remember’st not the slightest folly
That ever love did make thee run into,
Thou hast not loved.
4. Sonnet 116
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.
Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
6. Love’s Labour’s Lost
When Love speaks, the voice of all the gods
Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.
7. Venus and Adonis
Love is a spirit all compact of fire.
8. Romeo and Juliet (there had to be at least 2 from this play)
Love goes toward love as school-boys from their books,
But love from love, toward school with heavy looks.
9. Twelfth Night
If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
I can express no kinder sign of love, than this kind kiss.
