Shakespeare at Large

It's too bad Mark and Priscilla didn't ask for my help planning their wedding, because I could have given them the perfect Shakespeare quote for their program or their vows. Oh, well. I guess they can post it on Facebook. Get it? It's a quote about faces and books and love.

Lady Capulet:

What say you? can you love the gentleman?
This night you shall behold him at our feast;
Read o'er the volume of young Paris' face,
And find delight writ there with beauty's pen;
Examine every married lineament,
And see how one another lends content
And what obscured in this fair volume lies
Find written in the margent of his eyes.
This precious book of love, this unbound lover,
To beautify him, only lacks a cover:

Call me, Mark. I got a million of these things.
