Enduring Love

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.

William Shakespeare

In keeping with this week of love and romance, one of my favourite Sonnets and some beautiful tales of enduring love.

These images and stories were selected from a post entitled “The 50 most romantic photos of all time”

Please visit the post as I have selected just a few of the images.

But, my favourite love story is the one of Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero.

      Thank you Louise, I love all my research for my blog. It is an eclectic mix of Magpie findings and I am thrilled when someone enjoys them, I am also so excited to have found your “Ever Your Husband” It is a most extraordinary collection and contains the most beautifully written letters. I am in possession of some equally beautiful letters written by my husbands grandfather to his “Dearest Bee” at the turn of 19th century, they are a family treasure. I am so entranced with your blog I am going to create a link to it as I think it is a love story worth following.
