Sonnet 2 Family Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (verse)

Quote #4

This were to be new made when thou art old,
And see thy blood warm when thou feel'st it cold. (lines 13-14)

This image caps off this whole family theme, by driving home the point that your kid is basically a newer copy of yourself. He has your same looks and even your same blood. In this poem, family isn't a way of connecting to other people so much as it is a way of prolonging your own life.
