Let us not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments.
Shakespeare, Sonnet 116:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Posted with love and solidarity to GLBT DUers. Until your rights equal mine, my rights are a lie.

16. Hey there!
Just letting you know that I got the _Ender's Game_ reference, which I love. (In spite of the fact that I hear the author is far from a progressive.)

And, yes, I usually feel like varelse, too.
