Find In Me More Value

I want to be pursued. Wooed. Courted. I want a man who is willing to dig deeper in order to discover the riches within me.

“Wooing thee, I found thee of more value
Than stamps in gold or sums in sealed bags;
And 'tis the very riches of thyself
That now I aim at.”

~William Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor

Is this concept entirely too medieval for the modern world to comprehend? Has courtship become a relic of the past? Is chivalry dead?


  1. No; no; no. But I cannot prove it to you, being (as they say) "taken". Otherwise... who knows?

    But as the Jamaican proverb has it:

    Ebbry hoe hab 'im tick abush

    which translated from the patois means "For every hoe, somewhere in the bush a stick can be found which will make a perfect handle for it."

    May the quest prove fruitful, both for you and that tick abush who's waiting to meet you!

  2. LOL @ Vincent's patois quote above. Thanks for the translation... I had different ideas.

    Beth.. I think what this modern world lacks more than anything else... is purposeful men.
