Love sought is good, but giv'n unsought is better. William Shakespeare

Some suggestions for you :

Set honour in one eye and death i' the other, And I will look on both indifferently, For let the gods so speed me as I love The name of honour more than I fear death.

Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.

Doubt thou the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; 125 Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love.

Knowing I lov'd my books, he furnish'd me From mine own library with volumes that I prize above my dukedom.

And though she be but little, she is fierce.

I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers could not, with all their quantity of love, make up my sum.

She's beautiful, and therefore to be wooed; She is a woman, therefore to be won.

Make not your thoughts your prisons.

The Moor is of a free and open nature, That thinks men honest that but seem to be so; And will as tenderly be led by the nose As asses are.

When I have seen such interchange of state, Or state itself confounded, to decay; Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate— That Time will come and take my love away. This thought is as a death which cannot choose But weep to have, that which it fears to lose.

My salad days When I was green in judgment.

When Elizabeth was old and had a wrinkled face and black teeth, she was one day discovered practicing the dance step alone, to the sound of a fiddle, determined to keep up to the last the limberness and agility necessary to impress foreign ambassadors with her grace and youth.

But by bad courses may be understood that their events can never fall out good.

A man is never undone till he be hang'd.
