Quote of the day, yay!

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.
Oh 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 altho' his highth be taken.

-- Shakespeare's Sonnet 116, quoted in Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body, Vintage, London 1993, p. 162
