Old Quote for New Ears

How do I love thee? 
Let me count the ways. 
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height. 
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight 
For the ends of being and ideal grace. 
I love thee to the level of every day's, 
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. 
I love thee freely, as men strive for right. 
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. 
I love thee with the passion put to use, 
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. 
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose, 
With my lost saints. 
I love thee with the breath, 
Smiles, tears, of all my life; 
and, if God choose, 
I shall but love thee better after death.

-Shakespeare
