Takes My Breath Away #5



Today I am happy to welcome a friend from goodreads, you may recognize her as she stops by frequently at Forever Book Lover and comments using the pen name BlackTulip. Well this month, she was kind enough to submit some quotes, that simply Takes Your Breath Away.

"I have 3 recent and 1 very old ; this very old one took my breath away 30 years ago when I was at university studying British literature." BlackTulip


Let me not to marriage of true minds admit impediments ~       Sonnet 116

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 

"It's totally timeless ... nothing is better than these Sonnets !!!"  BlackTulip


Do you believe in love, Arran?

When I look into your eyes, darling, when I hold you in my arms, when I pretend reality can be changed and I'm allowed to have my heart's desire...then, yes, I believe in love.
  ~ The Devil of Jedburgh - Claire Robyns 


He would let her go when the time came. What he couldn't do, what he didn't have the strength for, was to let her go without leaving a part of him with her, stamped upon her body, heart, mind and soul. Whenever she thought about the first awakenings of her body to the sensual pleasures of love, it would be the taste and feel of his lips on hers, his arms she recalled wrapped around her.
  
The Devil of Jedburgh - Claire Robyns 


He tipped her chin to him, and the tears he saw filling her eyes tore at his gut. He was doing it all wrong. "Ye are all I am, all I'll ever be. Without ye, I am naught. Open yer heart ta me, wife, give me another chance ta be the man ye deserve."
Betrayed - Claire Robyns
