Rating: 3.1
Not from the stars do I my judgement pluck,
And yet methinks I have astronomy,
But not to tell of good, or evil luck,

Paraphrase of Sonnet 14 I do not receive my knowledge or make my decisions by the stars; Though I have enough training in astrology to do so, I cannot predict good luck or bad, Or plagues, or famine, or the weather; Nor can I say what will happen at any given moment in our daily lives, Alloting to each man his thunder, rain, and wind [i.e., he cannot fortell our personal troubles], Or even tell princes if things will go well for them, By frequent omens that I see in the heavens: But from your eyes alone do I derive my knowledge, And they are my constant stars, in which I read such art [gain such knowledge] That I see truth and beauty will live together in harmony, If you would only turn your focus from yourself to creating a child; Or else this is my prophecy: That truth and beauty will all end when you die
