To His Coy Mistress

"My vegetable love should grow
Vaster than empires, and more slow."
-the guy is exaggerating his love for the other lady.

"An hundred years should go to praise
Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze;
Two hundred to adore each breast,"
-He's exaggerating her beauty. he's saying that although time may past and years get older she will still be beautiful.
