About Poems and Quote for Cards From Shakespeare.

The Bard, better known as William Shakespeare, wrote some of the most beautiful lines of poetry in his plays and sonnets.

As such, love quotes by Shakespeare probably count among the most-used sentiments in crafts like homemade cards, scrapbooks and even gratitude jars.

Additionally, Shakespeare's love sonnets are good choices for cards or gift books of longer lengths.

Poems and Quotes by Shakespeare from his Sonnets:

Sonnet 1

O let me true in love but truly write,
And then believe me, my love is as fair,
As any mother's child, though not so bright
As those gold candles fixed in heaven's air:

Sonnet 2

Can my love excuse the slow offence,
Of my dull bearer, when from thee I speed,
From where thou art, why should I haste me thence?

Valentine Love Quotes by Shakespeare From his Plays:

  • If music be the food of love, play on.
  • The course of true love never did run smooth.
  • Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.
  • There‚Äôs beggary in love that can be reckoned.
  • Speak low if you speak love.
  • Love goes by haps; Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.
  • Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
  • Hear my soul speak. Of the very instant that I saw you, Did my heart fly at your service.
  • I would not wish any companion in the world but you.
  • Oh, how this spring of love resembleth, The uncertain glory of an April day, Which now shows all beauty of the Sun, And by and by a cloud takes all away.
