One Can Only Quote Mini Challenge.

I'm doing this belatedly as I missed this one yesterday because of the time difference !

I'm going traditional (ish) and staying with the master of love, Shakespeare.

I used this one in my Book Valentine to Archer, but it's my favourite Shakespeare sonnet so I'm using it again. (Whether it was meant as an impassioned hope to preserve his friend's memory or as a mockery of the egotistical classical poets, I love the eternal message):

No 55:

In Sonnet 23 Shakespeare is too scared to speak of his true love, so he writes about it - we've all been there.

Yes, I know most people will use quotes from there fav current books, so here are a few of mine:

"You have me Shaw, anyway you need me, anyway you want me, you have me."  - Rule (Jay Crownover).

"Someday… when we're old and gray, I'm going to look at you lying in bed beside me, just like this, and I'm going to look into your eyes and know that it's only ever been you. And that is going to be the great joy of my life."  - Archer's Voice (Mia Sheridan).

"I've had a lifetime of wrong. You're the only thing thats right." - Beautiful Oblivion (Jamie McGuire).

"Kat." He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. "I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I … burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world— in any world— would be stronger than my love for you?" - Opposition (Jennifer L. Armentrout).

"Welcome to the wonderful world of jealousy, he thought. For the price of admission, you get a splitting headache, a nearly irresistible urge to commit murder, and an inferiority complex. Yippee." - Dark Lover BDB #1 (J.R. Ward).

(Drawing of Z, Phury, Tohr, Wrath, Rhage, Vishous & Butch from BDB by MayManiac on deviant art).
