Some examples of couplets from Shakespeare:
* "Blessed are you whose worthiness gives scope,
Being had, to triumph; being lacked, to hope."
* "So, till the judgement that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lovers" eyes."
* "Tir"d with all these, from these would I be gone,
Save that, to die, I leave my love alone."
* "You still shall live, such virtue hath my pen,
Where breath most breathes, even in the mouths of men."
* "How like Eve"s apple doth thy beauty grow,
If thy sweet virtue answer not thy show!"
