English: Cobbe portrait, claimed to be a portrait of William Shakespeare done while he was alive Lëtzebuergesch: Uelegporträt vum William Shakespeare am Alter vu 46 Joer, gemoolt 1610 zu Liefzäite vum Dichter, haut am Besëtz vum Konschtrestaurator Alec Cobbe. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I have been reading William Shakespeare and how he was a wonderful play writer,  he was well known for a lot of plays that he had written over time. Shakespeare was also a good writer with long narrative poems and the lyric. I like the poem that he wrote sonnet 116.this poem spoke to me more than the others it the world literature book, on page 1446. Who was Shakespeare he was a man that was filled with love and the expression of it. He could tap into human emotions and summarize it with words that no other could do. Shakespeare is one of my favorite poets, he has taught me how to really love another and express to my husband on a more intimate level. I have learnt what it means to grow old and still be in love with the man I have married, but I hope to experience one day in my life time.

This poem that I have read has a positive outlook on life and love to me. The message is straightforward. If a person discovers an obstacle or a spoken word that can be restricting his relationship with another person, he should not change or modify his love for that person. On the other hand, his love should continue to be unchanging and continuous, like the sun that nourishes the earth. Love is meant to work through life’s sticky situations good and bad, happy and sad. In account to his love, it should remain strong and enriched throughout life, though their youth and old age. All of Shakespeare’s writings are beautiful with an endless message to be learnt from. His writings remain popular because of their complexity. Look at us today we use Shakespeare’s writings for movies, TV shows, and plays; there is still an impact with those powerful words of feelings that he expressed on paper in our daily lives.

In the book I am reading World Literature the poem goes:
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.

 

I believe that it is amazing to see, know or even have such a bond with another person that is platonically, mentally and emotionally strong, it would not allow problems, personal flaws, etc. to come in between the relationship. Love is not love if problems, personal hang-ups, etc. these things can separate them. Faithfulness of real love during times of difficulties, strengthens and creates a loyal structure. This kind of love is to continuous. We all deserve a love like this in our life time!

About danaib322

My name is Danai Brown and I’m a university student on a life-long quest to discover all of the good in people as well as learn the behavior of many. I have come to realize that there are many people that say that this world is “hopeless or pointless”. I want to be able to show that there is hope. I personally believe that there are miracles and these miracles will change the behavior that the person will display. Finding the positive is the easiest, but the negative you will have to work harder to find. I have been told that it is the other way around; but I have to disagree. I want to bring to my blog an insight of hope as well as teach the things that I have learned. Sharing is the key to the success in changing a negative thought to a positive one. By following my blog and I can assure you that you will see the world in a different light. I was born in the Dayton, Ohio area but have spent the majority of my life in Atlanta, Ga. I currently attend South University-Savannah campus; I am studying for my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in clinical and community Communications and Public Relations. I have been blessed with two amazing parents, two sister, two brother, and four talented and astounding kids. I am the happiest when I am sounded by people that I can get to know and care about; as well as those that I can help make a difference in their lives. I have had the opportunity to participate in many acts of service, and I continue to do all that I can do. All I want to do is leave people with hope in knowing that someone cares about them. I have come to understand that life is an eternal quest about knowing oneself. I have decided that it was time to challenge myself, to rediscover my hidden traits, talents, and tendencies. This is where I am at right now, I have been able to grow and learn more about who I am and become comfortable with me. I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. This is also another reason why I want to do more for people. I want to give the give of what I have found, how to love my self. We can all learn from each other, I hope to be able to do that with this blog. Feel free to leave a comment or share an inspirational story, I welcome it. You may even have advice for me to improve my blog, please contact me on my Facebook account at: http://facebook.com/danaib1 I would love to hear from you!
