Romeo and Juliet Quotes

Quote 1: "...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..." Act 1, Scene 1, lines 86-96

Quote 6: "'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 word would smell as sweet." Act 2, Scene 2, lines 38-44

Quote 10: "Give me my Romeo; and when he shall die
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night,
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
O, I have bought the mansion of a love
But not possess'd it, and though I am sold,
Not yet enjoy'd." Act 3, Scene 2, lines 21-28

Quote 11: "'Romeo is banished,/ There is no end, no limit, measure, bound,/ In that word's death. No words can that woe sound." Act 3, Scene 2, lines 124-126

Quote 14: "Is there no pity sitting in the clouds
That sees into the bottom of my grief?
O sweet my mother, cast me not away!
Delay this marriage for a month, a week,
Or if you do not, make the bridal bed
In that dim monument where Tybalt lies." Act 3, Scene 5, lines 198-203

Quote 15: "Or bid me go into a new-made grave,
And hide me with a dead man in his shroud -
Things that, to hear them told, have made me tremble -
And I will do it without fear or doubt,
To live an unstain'd wife to my sweet love." Act 4, Scene 1, lines 84-88

Quote 16: "O woe! O woeful, woeful, woeful day!
Most lamentable day. Most woeful day
