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. (2.2,Juliet)But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.(2.2. Romeo) A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life. (Prolouge 7)O, then, I see Queen Mab hath been with you! She is the fairies’ midwife, and she comes ...(1.4, Mercutio)A plague o’ both your houses!( 3.1,Mercutio) ...Romeo, Romeo, Romeo! Here's drink—I drink to thee.(4.3,Juliet)A glooming peace this morning with it brings; The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things; Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished: For never was a story of more woe Than this of Juliet and her Romeo (5.3, Prince)
