Last Post Today I Swear!!

So Carl V at Stainless Steel Droppings had an interesting conglomerate post, the first section of which was on literary tattoos. The article he linked to concerned both people's tattoos of literary works and a short story that the author tattooed onto over 2000 people, one word at a time. I had never thought about getting words tattooed on myself until that moment (i prefer black and white mandala type things when i was considering getting one) but i knew immediately what i would get:

By heaven, I think my love as rare as any she belied with false compare

Any guesses what it's from?

  1. It sounds very, very familiar but I don't think I can hazard a guess. I love the language though.

    It is certainly an interesting idea, I'm glad Midori Snyder had such an interesting post about it.

  2. It's Shakespeare I think - maybe the sonnet that begins with "my ladies are are nothing like the sun . . ."?
