"Time doth transfix ..." Quote of William Shakespeare

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Time doth transfix the flourish set on youth And delves the parallels in beauty's brow, Feeds on the rarities of nature's truth, And nothing stands but for his scythe to mow: And yet to times in hope my verse shall stand, Praising thy worth, despite his cruel hand.

William Shakespeare
