True Love

Shakespear is seen as the bard of the English language second only to Milton and even that is debated. In his sonnets he presents one idea of love. He sees love as “the marriage of true minds” and one that time can not ravage. It begins as an admirer of a beauty and grace that it does not wish time to touch and completes itself in a deep connection where the effects of time do not matter. True love pulls through hard times and difficulties not unsinged, but refined.

  1. I love the comment "It begins as an admirer of a beauty and grace that it does not wish time to touch and completes itself in a deep connection where the effects of time do not matter." That is a very true statement and it reminds me of the way that God loves us. He started us out in the Garden of Eden where time could not touch our beauty and grace but then we fell and are now subject to the effects of time but they do not matter to Him who loves us truly.
