Notable lines

From fairest creatures we desire increase,
That thereby beauty's rose might never die....

— First lines

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?


When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state....


When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past....


When in the chronicle of wasted time...


Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments.


When my love swears that she is made of truth,
I do believe her, though I know she lies....
