Happy Valentine’s Day!

The staff at the Advising Center would like to wish you all a happy Valentine’s Day and hope that you have exciting plans for the Winter Break next week (Feb 20th through the 24th)!  In the spirit of the holiday we thought that you might appreciate an old fashioned love poem by everybody’s favorite poet and playwright Billy Bob (William) Shakespeare.

Sonnet 116

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 wandering 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.

                                By William Shakespeare
