Mortality Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come,
Love alters not with [Time’s] brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom. (9-12)

Age and death have no bearing upon love; it’s immortal, and endures until the end of the world.
