Love him or loathe him, there’s no denying that William Shakespeare had a way with words. Widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language, Shakespeare’s plays, sonnets, and poems have captured the hearts of lovebirds (and the lovelorn) around the world since the late 1500s.

So cheesy it just might work.

Try this one next time you’re out dancing.

For that love/hate relationship: equal parts insulting and romantic!

Let it be known that your love is true.


When one kiss just isn’t enough.
