O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
  It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
    As a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear--
      Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, v) [Beauty]

So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows
  As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, v) [Doves]

Appear thou in the likeness of sigh;
  Speak but one rhyme, and I am satisfied!
    Cry but 'Ay me! pronounce but 'love' and 'dove':
      Speak to my gossip Venus one fair word,
        One nickname for her purblind son and heir
          Young Abraham Cupid, he that shot so true
            When King Cophetus loved the beggar maid!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Mercutio at II, i)
        [Love]

But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
  It is the East, and Juliet is the sun.
    Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
      Who is already sick and pale with grief
        That thou her maid art far more fair than she.
          Be not her maid, since she is envious.
            Her vestal livery is but since and green,
              And none but fools fo wear it. Cast it off.
                It is my lady; O, it is my love!
                  O that she knew she were!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, i) [Beauty]

Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye
  Than twenty of their swords!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Eyes]

And I'll still stay, to have thee still forget,
  Forgetting any other home but this.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Home]

And what love can do, that does love attempt.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii)
        [Proverbs]

Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
  Who is already sick and pale with grief
    That thou her maid art far more fair than she.
      Be not her maid, since she is envious.
        Her vestal livery is but sick and green,
          And none but fools do wear it. Cast it off.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Envy]

At lovers' perjuries,
  They say Jove laughs.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Love : Proverbs]

Do not swear at all;
  Or if thou wilt, swear by thy gracious self,
    Which is the god of my idolatry,
      And I'll believe thee.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Swearing]

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
  That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Parting]

He jests at scars that never felt a wound.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii)
        [Proverbs : Wounds]

I would have thee gone,
  And yet no further than a wanton's bird,
    Who lets it hop a little from her hand,
      Like a poor prisoner in his twisted gyves,
        And with a silk thread plucks it back again.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Proverbs]

It is my soul that calls upon my name.
  How silver-sweet sound lovers' tongues by night,
    Like softest music to attending ears!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Love]

It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden;
  Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be
    Ere one can say 'It lightens.'
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Haste : Lightning : Speed]

Love goes toward love as schoolboys from their books;
  But love from love, toward school with heavy looks.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Love]

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
  My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
    The more I have, for both are infinite.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii) [Love]

O gentle Romeo,
  If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully.
    Or if thou thinkest I am too quickly won,
      I'll frown, and be perverse, and say thee nay,
        So thou wilt woo; but else, not for the world.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Wooing]

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.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Ancestry : Love]

O, swear not by the moon, th' inconstant moon,
  That monthly changes in her circled orb,
    Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Inconstancy]

See how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
  O that I were a glove upon that hand,
    That I might touch that cheek!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Love]

The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars
  As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven
    Would through the airy region stream so bright
      That birds would sing and think it were not night.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Eyes]

What's in a name?
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Names : Proverbs]

What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, ii)
        [Names : Proverbs : Roses]

With love's light wings did I o'erperch these walls;
  For stony limits cannot hold love out,
    And what love can do, that dares love attempt.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, ii) [Love]
