Selected passagesEdit

He jests at scars, but never felt a wound.
But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is east, and Juliet is the sun!
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
See! How she leans her cheek upon her hand:
O! that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek.
What is in a name? That which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet.
This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
May prove beautieous flower when next we meet.
O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art though 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.
