Romeo and Juliet-Quotes and Terms Act 1 and 2

Tybalt talks of his dislike for Montagues and Benvolio. “What, drawn and talk of peace? I hate the word,/As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee, coward.” Tybalt
Prince states that another disruption will result in their death. “If ever you disturb our streets again,/Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.” Prince
There have been three fights before, started by a shallow remark. “Throw your mistemper’d weapons to the ground,/ And hear the sentence of your moved prince./Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word,” Prince
Benvolio tells Romeo to go to the ball and compare Rosaline with the other women there. “Go thither, and with unattainted eye/ Compare her face with some that I shall show/ And I will make thee think thy swan a crow.” Benvolio
Romeo does not think he will see anyone more beautiful than Rosaline at the ball, but he says he will come to enjoy himself. “I’ll go along no such sight to be shown,/ But to rejoice in splendour of mine own.” Romeo
Romeo is unsure about attending because he had a dream that warned him. “With this night’s revels and expire the term/Of a despised life clos’d in my breast/By some vile forfeit of untimely death.” Romeo
Romeo falls in love with Juliet immediately, love at first sight “The measure done, I’ll watch her place of stand,/ And touching hers, make blessed my rude hand./ Did my heart love till now? forswear it sight!/ For i ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” Romeo
Tybalt complains about Romeo’s presence. “Uncle, this is a Montague, our foe:/A villain that is hither come in spite,/To scorn at our solemnity this night.” Tybalt
Juliet discovers that Romeo is a Montague. “My only love sprung from my only hate!/ Too early seen unknown, and known too late!” Juliet
Juliet wishes for them to change their names to be together and is unaware of Romeo’s presence. “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
Juliet wants Romeo to arrange for them to be married the next day. “If that thy bent of love be honourable,/Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow,” Juliet
Friar Lawrence states that young men do not experience true love. “Young men’s love then lies/Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.” Friar Lawrence
Friar Lawrence implies that Romeo is not strong so their love will not last. “Women may fall, when there’s no strength in men.” Friar Lawrence
Friar Lawrence makes a statement that applies to Romeo and Juliet’s relationship. “Wisely and slowly, they stumble that run fast” Friar Lawrence
