In this scene from Ménage à Troi, where Picard expresses his love Lwaxana, what part is not from Shakespeare?

Tie breaker, if needed, will go to who can name the most plays and sonnets Picard cobbled together.
My love is as a fever, longing still
For that which longer nurseth the disease ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 147

In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes,
For they in thee a thousand errors note;
But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise,
Who in despite of view is pleased to dote ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 141

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 18

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 116

When I have plucked the rose,
I cannot give it vital growth again.
It needs must wither ~ Shakespeare Othello, Act V, scene 2

'Tis better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all ~ Alfred Tennyson's In Memorium
Wow. And you'd have won the tie breaker too.

I looked those quotes up in my Book of Shakespeare Sonnets and after not finding the Othello quote I asked a teacher for the play - I knew I'd never find it by just looking through all the plays - and I already knew the quote from Tennyson.

Tell me, did you look them up? or did you know them?

Your turn.
