William Shakespeare is known for many things, his iconic poems, playwrights, and of course, love.
FOX's Ashley Papa presents "FOX on Love":
He was a playwright, a poet, and an expert on love and the human heart: William Shakespeare.
Author of the book, 'Sex with Shakespeare', Jillian Keenan, says there's lots to learn about love from his plays.
Like in "Romeo and Juliet", Juliet says, "My bounty is as boundless as the sea. My love as deep. The more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite":
(Keenan) "The sea is endless and so is love. And the more you give love, the more you have love. It's not a finite commodity, it's something that grows upon itself."
And in "The Taming of the Shrew" when Petruchio says, "If she and I be pleased, what's that to you?":
(Keenan) "Shakespeare understood that a relationship doesn't have to look appealing to all people it only has to be happy, consensual and satisfying to two people the people in that relationship."
And perhaps most importantly when it comes to love, as Shakespeare writes, "To thine own self be true".
