15 quotations from the play

                                  bir3_anm.gif (15868 bytes)I would I were thy bird

                                                                  Sweet, so would I:

             Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing.

   Good-night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow

                       That I shall say good night till it be morrow.


      With love's light wings did I o'er-perch these walls

                                 heart.gif (4940 bytes)       For stony limits cannot hold out,

    And what love can do that dares love attempt.



                      My only love sprung from my only hate!

        Too early seen unknown, and known too late !



O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou                          Romeo?


                    Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again.

  I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins,

                     That almost freezes the heat of life.


   Out, alas! She's cold;

            Her blood is settled, and her joints are stiff;

                              Life and these lips have long been separated :

Death lies on her like an untimely frost

                                Upon the sweetest flower of all the field.



                        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 forefinger of an alderman,

                    Drawn with a team of little atomies

                            Athwart men's noses as they lie asleep.



      Seal up the mouth of outrage for a while,

                Till we can clear these ambiguities.


            O! I am Fortune's fool.


O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright.

                    It seems she hangs upon the cheek if night

               Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear;

                                  Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.


He jests at scars, that never felt a wound.

                     But,soft! what light through yonder window breaks?

         It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.



At lovers' perjuries,

              They say, Jove laughs. O gentle Romeo!

If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully:                                Or if thou think'st I am too quickly won, heart.gif (4940 bytes)

        I'll frown and be preverse and say thee nay ,

           So thou wilt woo.


          ! swear not by the moon,                                          the inconstant moon,

                That monthly changes in her orb,

       Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.


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.


Gallop space, you fiery-footed steeds,

                Towards Phoebus' lodging; such a waggoner

    As Phaethon would whip you to the west,

                                     And bring in cloudy night immediately

Spread thy close curtain, love-performing  night!
