About love _ William Shakspeare (1564-1616)

When My Love Swears That She is Made of Truth 

When  my love swears that she is made of truth ,

I do believe her , though I know she lies , 

That she might think me some untutored youth,

Unlearned in the world's false subtleties.

Thus vainly thinking she thinks me young , 

Although she knows my days are past the best , 

Simply I credit her false - speaking tongue;

On both sides thus is simply truth supprest .

But wherefore says she not she is unjust ? 

And wherefore say not I that I am  old ?

Oh , love's best habit is in seeming  trust, 

And age in love  loves not to have years told: 

Therefore I lie  with her and she with me ,

And in our faults by lies we flattered be . 

 

 But I have a question  is love a big lie in our lives ? 

I think that without a love we can't live , and we I mean here human being  that we are made of a lot of emotions  one of these emotions is love  heart so it's aprecious gift  from God .

Hi Tatyana,

I really like Shakespeare's works! I have not come across this sonnet before but really enjoyed reading it.

I think that love is the most important and powerful emotion there is. It is the only one capable of healing all suffering and ending hatred, which is causing the many problems we have going on in the world now. Do you agree?

With regards to your written English, I just have the following points to add...

  •  But I have a question  is love a big lie in our lives ? (You should use a colon here in order to separate the two clauses, as the second one illustrates the first. Take a look at this link for more information) But I have a question: is love a big lie in our lives?
  • I think that without a love we can't live - (the word "love" is mostly an uncountable noun) I think that without love, we can't live.
  • and we I mean here human being - and by "we", I mean human beings. (Not sure why you have inserted the word "here" before human beings.)
  •  that we are made of a lot of emotions  one of these emotions is love - In my opinion, you need to start a new sentence here. Then you need to use the word "and" (a conjunction). We are have a lot of emotions and one of these emotions is love.
  • it's aprecious gift  from God . - it's a precious gift  from God . (the word "aprecious" does not exist)

Looking forward to reading more of your posts Tatyana :-)

You make a very good point here, Tatyana.  Love is so important and it's the most precious gift a parent can give to a child because it enables the child to develop self-love and in turn to be able to love others.  It's no coincidence that Shakespeare uses love as a fundamental theme for most of his work.

I think that without a love [love is uncountable unless we are referring to a person as a love] we can't live, and by "weI mean here human beings.  I think that we are made of a lot of emotions and one of these emotions is love  heart So it's a precious gift  from God
