In Celebration of Valentine’s Day

Date Posted: 2001-02-09

An appropriate poem for the one day in the year set aside for romantics is this love sonnet by William Shakespeare. We look at the origins and history of Valentine’s day on page 20 and a bit closer to home, on page 5 the mysteries of Love Motels are revealed.




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 Shakepeare
(1564 - 1616)
