If you have been deceived in love and feeling low, read Shakespeare’s Sonnets. MHF Kolkata recommends this sonnet that will help to overcome any ill feeling

MORNING RAGA: SHAKESPEARE SONNET

  •      Take all my loves, my love, yea take them all;
         What hast thou then more than thou hadst before?
         No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call;
         All mine was thine, before thou hadst this more.
  •      Then, if for my love, thou my love receivest,
         I cannot blame thee, for my love thou usest;
         But yet be blam'd, if thou thy self deceivest
         By wilful taste of what thyself refusest.
  •      I do forgive thy robbery, gentle thief,
         Although thou steal thee all my poverty:
         And yet, love knows it is a greater grief
         To bear love's wrong, than hate's known injury.
  •      Lascivious grace, in whom all ill well shows,
         Kill me with spites yet we must not be foes.
  •      ~ William Shakespeare, Sonnets, Sonnet XL
