Romeo and Juliet Quotes - Act IV
|Friar Lawrence||"Uneven is the course. I like it not."|
|Paris|| "Now, sir, her father counts it dangerous|
That she do give her sorrow so much sway,
And in his wisdom hastes our marriage
To stop the inundation of her tears,"
|Friar Lawrence||"I would I knew not why it should be slowed."|
|Juliet||"That may be, sir, when I may be a wife."|
|Juliet||"I will confess to you that I love him."|
|Paris||"Thy face is mine, and thou hast slandered it."|
|Juliet||"Come weep with me, past hope, past care, past help."|
|Juliet|| "Tell me not, Friar, that thou hearest of this,|
Unless thou tell me how I may prevent it.
If in thy wisdom thou canst give no help,
Do thou but call my resolution wise,
And with this knife I'll help it presently."
|Friar Lawrence|| "Hold, daughter, I do spy a king of hope,|
Which craves as desperate an execution
As that is desperate which we could prevent."
|Friar Lawrence|| "That cop'st with death himself to 'scape from it;|
And if thou darest, I'll give thee remedy."
|Juliet|| "And I will do it without fear or doubt,|
To live an unstained wife to my sweet love."
|Friar Lawrence|| "Now, when the bridegroom in the morning comes|
To rouse thee from thy bed, there art thou dead."
|Juliet||"Love give me strength, and strength shall help afford."|
|Juliet|| "By holy Lawrence to fall prostrate here|
To beg your pardon. Pardon, I beseech you.
Henceforward I am ever ruled by you."
|Capulet|| "Send for the County. Go tell him of this.|
I'll have this knot knit up tomorrow morning."
|Capulet|| "Now, afore God, this reverend holy friar,|
All our whole city is much bound to him."
|Capulet|| "My heart is wondrous light|
Since this same wayward girl is so reclaimed."
|Juliet|| "So please you, let me now be left alone,|
And let the Nurse this night sit up with you,
For I am sure you have your hands full all
In this so sudden business."
|Juliet|| "Farewell.-God knows when we shall meet again.|
I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins
That almost freezes up the heat of life."
|Juliet|| "My dismal scene I needs must act alone.|
Come, vial. [She takes out the vial.]
What if this mixture do not work at all?
Shall I be married then tomorrow morning?
[She takes out her knife and puts it down beside her.]
No, no, this shall forbid it. Lie thou there.
|Juliet|| "Upon a rapier's point! Stay, Tybalt, stay!|
Romeo, Romeo, Romeo! Here's a drink. I drink to thee."
|Nurse|| "How sound is she asleep!|
I needs must wake her.-Madam, madam, madam!
Ay, let the County take you in your bed,
He'll frighten you up, i' faith."
|Nurse||"O lamentable day!"|
|Capulet|| "Life and these lips have long been separated.|
Death lies on her like an untimely frost
Upon the sweetest flower of all the field."
|Capulet||"Ready to go, but never to return."|
|Paris|| "Have I thought so long to see this morning's face, |
And doth it give me such as sight as this?"
|Paris|| "Beguiled, divorced, wronged, spited, slain!|
Most detestable death, by thee beguiled,
By cruel, cruel thee quite overthrown!
O love! O life! Not life, but life in death!
|Friar Lawrence|| "The most you sought was her promotion, |
For 'twas your heaven she should be advanced;
And weep you now, seeing she is advanced
Above the clouds, as high as heaven itself?"
|Capulet|| "All things that we ordained festival|
Turn from their office to black funeral;
Our instruments to melancholy bells,
Our wedding cheer to a sad burial feast,
Our solemn hymns to sullen dirges change,
Our bridal flowers serve for a buried corse,
And all things change them to the contrary."
|Friar Lawrence|| "The heavens do loud upon you for some ill.|
Move them no more by crossing their high will."
