Romeo and Juliet

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes- A pair of star-crosse lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows- Doth with their death bury their parents' strife

Chorus to Audience in Prologue

Part fools! Put up your swords. You know not what you do.

Benvolio to Sampson, Gregory, Abram, and servingman in I,i

What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word as I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee coward.

Tybalt to Benvolio in I,i

If ever you disturb our streets again, your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.

Prince Escalus to Lady and Lord Montague, Lady and Lord Capulet, Tybalt, Benvolio, and servants in I,i

Examine other beauties.

Benvolio to Romeo in I,i

She hath not seen the change of fourteen years. Let two more summer wither in their price ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.

Lord Capulet to Paris in I,ii

Earth hath swallowed all my hopes but she; She's the hopeful lady of my earth.

Lord Capulet to Paris in I,ii

Take thou some new infection to thy eye, and the rank poison of the old will die.

Benvolio to Romeo in I,ii

Compare her face with some that I shall show, and I will make thee think thy swan a crow.

Benvolio to Romeo in I,ii

I'll go along, no such sight to be shown, but to rejoice in splendor of mine own.

Romeo to Benvolio in I,ii

It is an honor that I dream not of.

Juliet to Lady Capulet and Nurse in I,iii

A man, young lady-lady such a man as all the world-why he's a man of wax.

Nurse to Juliet in I,iii

This precious book of love, this unbound lover, to beautify him only lacks a cover.

Lady Capulet to Juliet in I,iii

I'll look to like, if looking liking move. But no more deep will I endart mine eyes, than your consent gives strength to make it fly.

Juliet to Lady Capulet in I,iii

True, I talk of dreams, which are the children of an idle brain, begot of nothing but vain fantasy,

Mercutio to Romeo and Benvolio in I,iiii

I fear too early, for my mind misgives some consequence yet handing in the stars shall bitterly begin his fearful date with their night's revels, and expire the term of a despised life closed in my breast by some vile forfeit of untimely death.

Romeo to Mercutio and Benvolio in I,iiii

O. she doth teach the torch to burn bright

Romeo to Himself in I,iiiii

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

Romeo to Himself in I,iiiii

You kiss by th' book.

Juliet to Romeo in I,iiiii

Is she a Capulet? O dear account! My life is my foe's debt.

Romeo in an ASIDE in I,iiiii

Go ask his name. If he be married my grave I like to be my wedding bed.

Juliet to Nurse and then Herself in I,iiiii
