I have no joy in this contract tonight: It is too rash, too unadvis'd, too sudden, Too like the lightningJulietMy bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep. The more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infiniteJuliet'If that thy bent of love be honourable, Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow, By one that I'll procure to come to thee, Where and what time thou wilt perform the rite,Juliet to RomeoLove goes toward love as schoolboys from their books, But love from love, toward school with heavy looksRomeoI will not fail: tis twenty years till thenJulietThe earth that's nature's mother is her tomb; What is her burying grave, that is her womb:Friar Laurence (soliloquy)'Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied, And vice sometime by action dignified. Within the infant rind of this weak flower Poison hath residence, and medicine power.'Friar Laurence'O she knew well Thy love did read by rote and could not spell. But come, young waverer, come, go with me, In one respect I'll thy assistant be. For this alliance may so happy prove To turn your household's rancour to pure love.'Friar to Romeo'Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast.'Friar to Romeo'Why, is not this better now than groaning for love? Now art thou sociable. Now art thou Romeo. Now art thou what thou art, by art as well as by nature. For this drivelling love is like a great natural that runs lolling up and down to hide this bauble in a hole.'Mercutio to RomeoO, she is lame! Love's heralds should be thoughts, Which ten times faster glide than the sun's beamsJulietHad she affections and warm youthful blood, She would be as swift in motion as a ballJulietBut old folks, many feign as they were dead, Unwieldy, slow, heavy, and pale as lead.Juliet'So smile the heavens upon this holy act That after-hours with sorrow chide us not!'Friar to Romeo'Amen, amen! But come what sorrow can, It cannot countervail the exchange of joy That one short minute gives me in her sight. Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare - It is enough I may but call her mine.'Romeo to Friar'These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which as they kiss consume. ...Friar to RomeoThey are but beggars that can count their worth, But my true love is grown to such excess I cannot sum up sum of half my wealth.Juliet to Romeo
