Elizabethan dating and marriage courtship
“To say that one waits a lifetime for his soulmate to come around is a paradox.People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone, and by the art of commitment become soulmates, which takes a lifetime to perfect.” ― Criss Jami, “I have been used to consider poetry as "the food of love" said Darcy."Of a fine, stout, healthy love it may. But if it be only a slight, thin sort of inclination, Iam convinced that one good sonnet will starve it entirely away.” ― Jane Austen, “Then is courtesy a turncoat.But it is certain I am loved of all ladies, only you excepted: and I would I could find in my heart that I had not a hard heart; for, truly, I love none.Beatrice: A dear happiness to women: they would else have been troubled with a pernicious suitor.Some seem to have but one vulnerable point, or door of access; while others have a thousand avenues, and may be captured in a thousand different ways.It is a great triumph of skill to gain the former, but a still greater proof of generalship to maintain possession of the latter, for man must battle for his fortress at every door and window."That was very unfair to frogs, who are lovely creatures.” ― Lisa Kleypas, “Bakit kaya ganun? We're not princesses anymore.” ― Marcelo Santos III, “I profess not to know how women’s hearts are wooed and won.To me they have always been matters of riddle and admiration.

But yet for all that, cousin, let him be a handsome fellow, or else make another curtsy and say 'Father, as it please me.” ― William Shakespeare, “My letters! And yet they seem alive and quivering Against my tremulous hands which loose the string And let them drop down on my knee to-night. This said, I am thine -- and so its ink has paled With lying at my heart that beat too fast. O Love, thy words have ill availed If, what this said, I dared repeat at last!
I thank God and my cold blood, I am of your humour for that: I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.
-Much Ado About Nothing” ― William Shakespeare, “And Poppy, remember that someday you will meet a frog who will turn into a handsome prince.""Good," Beatrix said.
"Because all she's met so far are princes who turn into frogs." "Mr. Yung ipaparamdam nila sa atin na hindi nila kayang mabuhay kung wala tayo.
Bayning is not a frog," Poppy protested."You're right," Beatrix said. Tapos kapag na-fall na tayo at handa na natin silang mahalin, bigla na lang mababago ang lahat.
This said, -- he wished to have me in his sight Once, as a friend: this fixed a day in spring To come and touch my hand ... ” ― Elizabeth Barrett Browning, “Wooing, wedding, and repenting is as a Scotch jig, a measure, and a cinque-pace: the first suit is hot and hasty like a Scotch jig--and full as fantastical; the wedding, mannerly modest, as a measure, full of state and ancientry; and then comes repentance and with his bad legs falls into the cinque-pace faster and faster, till he sink into his grave.” ― William Shakespeare, “Miranda was nineteen. Winston had suddenly decidedthat she was Venus, Queen Elizabeth, and the Virgin Mary all rolled into one,and Turner had all butforced himself on her.
