Humanities Day – Valentines Edition!

Welcome to Humanities day! This semester I’m taking weekend classes and on Saturdays I have Humanities: Enlightenment and Romanticism. I’m going to venture away from the Enlightenment and Romanticism to share with you some of my favorite love-themed pieces in humanities.

Alex Grey painting “Love is a Cosmic Force” [<3]

I love Alex Grey’s work. This is one of my favorites, however risque it may be. It’s in my standard signature when I send emails, so if I email you I just might forget to erase it and you’ll get a little art-porn. It’s so lovely though!

A poem… Sonnet CXXX by William Shakespeare:

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red, than her lips red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.


It’s much better read by Alan Rickman. 🙂

And that’s all I got for you right now. I’m incredibly sleepy right now and I just want to go snuggle and take more naps 🙂 Happy Saturday!
