Love goes toward love, as schoolboys from their books,
But love from love, toward school with heavy looks.

Good-night, good-night! Parting is such sweet sorrow
That I shall say good-night till it be morrow.

Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace,
Profaners of this neighbour-stained steel, —
Will they not hear? — What, ho! you men, you beasts,
That quench the fire of your pernicious rage
With purple fountains issuing from your veins!
On pain of torture, from those bloody hands
Throw your mistemper'd weapons to the ground,
And hear the sentence of your moved Prince.
Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word,
By thee, old Capulet, and Montague,
Have thrice disturb'd the quiet of our streets,
And made Verona's ancient citizens
Cast by their grave beseeming ornaments,
To wield old partisans, in hands as old,
Canker'd with peace, to part your canker'd hate.
If ever you disturb our streets again,
Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
For this time, all the rest depart away.
You, Capulet, shall go along with me —
And Montague, come you this afternoon —
To know our further pleasure in this case,
To old Free-town, our common judgment-place.
Once more, on pain of death, all men depart.
[Prince, scene i, Act I]

Benvolio : What sadness lengthens Romeo's hours?
Romeo : Not having that, which, having, makes them short.
Benvolio : In love?
Romeo : Out-
Benvolio : Of love?
Romeo : Out of her favour, where I am in love.

Why then, O brawling love! O loving hate!
O any thing, of nothing first created;
O heavy lightness! serious vanity!
Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms!
[Romeo, scene i, Act I]

Romeo : Is love a tender thing? it is too rough,
Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.
Mercutio : If love be rough with you, be rough with love;
Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.
[Scene iv, Act I]

Romeo : I dream'd a dream to-night.
Mercutio : And so did I.
Romeo : Well, what was yours?

O, then, I see Queen Mab hath been with you.
She is the fairies’ midwife, and she comes
In shape no bigger than an agate-stone
On the fore-finger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team of little atomies
Athwart men’s noses as they lie asleep.
[Mercutio, scene iv, Act I]

Romeo : Peace, peace, Mercutio, peace!
Thou talk'st of nothing.
Mercutio : True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,
Which is as thin of substance as the air
And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes
Even now the frozen bosom of the north,
And, being anger'd, puffs away from thence,
Turning his face to the dew-dropping south.
Benvolio : This wind you talk of blows us from ourselves;
Supper is done, and we shall come too late.
[Scene iv, Act I]

Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.

Benvolio : Part, fools!
Put up your swords; you know not what you do.
(Tybalt enters)
Tybalt : What, art thou drawn among these hartless hinds?
Turn thee, Benvolio; look upon thy death.
Benvolio : I do but keep the peace: put up thy sword,
Or manage it to part these men with me.
Tybalt : What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word,
As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.
Have at thee, coward!

My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!

This cannot anger him: 'twould anger him
To raise a spirit in his mistress' circle
Of some strange nature, letting it there stand
Till she had laid it and conjured it down;
That were some spite: my invocation
Is fair and honest, and in his mistress' name
I conjure only to raise up him.

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun!

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I'll no longer be a Capulet.
[Juliet, scene ii, Act II]

Tis but thy name that is my enemy; —
Thou art thyself though, not a Montague.
What's Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? That which we call a rose,
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title: — Romeo, doff thy name;
And for thy name, which is no part of thee,
Take all myself.
[Juliet, scene ii, Act II]

I take thee at thy word:
Call me but love, and I'll be new baptis'd;
Henceforth I never will be Romeo.

O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon,
That monthly changes in her circled orb,
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.

Romeo : O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?
Juliet : What satisfaction canst thou have tonight?
Romeo : The exchange of thy love's faithful vow for mine.
Juliet : I gave thee mine before thou didst request it:
And yet I would it were to give again.
Romeo : Wouldst thou withdraw it? for what purpose, love?
Juliet : But to be frank, and give it thee again.
And yet I wish but for the thing I have;
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.
[Scene ii, Act II ]

For naught so vile that on the earth doth live
But to the earth some special good doth give;
Nor aught so good but, strain'd from that fair use,
Revolts from true birth, stumbling on the abuse:
Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied;
And vice sometimes by action dignified.
[Friar Lawrence, scene iii, Act II]

Then plainly know my heart's dear love is set
On the fair daughter of rich Capulet:
As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine;
And all combin'd, save what thou must combine
By holy marriage: when, and where, and how
We met, we woo'd, and made exchange of vow,
I'll tell thee as we pass; but this I pray,
That thou consent to marry us to-day.
[Romeo to Friar Lawrence, scene iii, Act II]

Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here!
Is Rosaline, whom thou didst love so dear,
So soon forsaken? Young men's love then lies
Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.
[Friar Lawrence to Romeo, scene iii, Act II]
