Who Ever Loved, That Loved Not at First Sight? Christopher Marlowe

Posted on: 1 October 2007

It lies not in our power to love or hate,

For will in us is overruled by fate.

When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,

We wish that one should love, the other win;

And one especially do we affect

Of two gold ingots, like in each respect:

The reason no man knows, let it suffice,

What we behold is censured by our eyes.

Where both deliberate, the love is slight:

Who ever loved, that loved not at first sight?

Ah, the beautiful lines of Shakespeare’s greatest rival, with pictures of love’s greatest treasure.

Did I ever say Kit Marlowe was murdered less than a mile from my birthplace – only a couple of miles from where I now live? The site is now occupied by a noodle house.

A noodle house, you say? It’s criminal, that.

Wonderful words, Ann … as always!

Maybe ‘not at first sight’ but it didn’t take him long to get under my skin (I wish!). Beautiful words for a beautiful man.

noodle house! sheesh!!
Ann love is a bit of a bugger really, don’t you think?
