Introductory

William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 

CEASE to persuade, my loving Proteus;
Home-keeping youth have ever homely wits:
Were ’t not affection chains thy tender days
To the sweet glances of thy honored love,
I rather would entreat thy company        5
To see the wonders of the world abroad,
Than living dully sluggardized at home,
Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness.
