Shakespeare's Sonnet 116

                                 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.
