Care keeps his watch in every old man's eye,
  And where care lodges, sleep will never lie;
    But where unbruised youth with unstuffed brain
      Doth couch his limbs, there golden sleep doth reign.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii)
        [Care : Proverbs]

Care keeps his watch in every old man's eye.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii)
        [Care : Proverbs]

Nought so vile, that on the earth doth live,
  But to the earth some special good cloth give.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii) [Proverbs]

O, mickle is the powerful grace that lies
  In plants, herbs, stones, and their true quantities;
    For naught so vile that on the earth doth live
      But to the earth some special good doth give;
        Nor aught so good but, strained from that fair use,
          Revolts from true birth, stumbling on abuse.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii) [Providence]

The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night,
  Check'ring the Eastern clouds with streaks of light;
    And flecked darkness like a drunkard reels
      From forth day's path and Titan's fiery wheels.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii) [Morning]

'Tis almost morning. I would have thee gone--
  And yet no farther that a wanton's bird,
    That lets it hop a little from her hand,
      Like a poor prisoner in his twisted gyves,
        And with a silken thread plucks it back again,
          So loving-jealous of his liberty.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, iii)
        [Love]

Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied,
  And vice sometime 's by action dignified.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii) [Virtue]

Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii) [Haste]

A gentleman, nurse, that loves to hear himself talk and will speak more in a minute than he will stand to in a month.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, iv)
        [Boasting : Talk : Talking]

I warrant thee my man's as true as steel.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at II, iv) [Truth]

Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say,
  Two may keep counsel, putting one away?

        [Secrecy]

Nay, I am the very pink of courtesy.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Mercutio at II, iv)

Thy wit is a very bitter sweeting; it is a most sharp sauce.

        [Wit]

Without his roe, like a dried herring. O flesh, flesh, how art thou fishified!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Mercutio at II, iv)
        [Fish]

Love's heralds should be thoughts,
  Which ten times faster glide than the sun's beams
    Driving back shadows over low'ring hills.
      Therefore do nimble-pinioned doves draw Love,
        And therefore hath the wind-swift Cupid wings.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, v) [Love]

Now Romeo is beloved and loves again,
  Alike bewitched by the charm of looks;
    But to his foe supposed he must complain,
      And she steal love's sweet bait from fearful hooks.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Chorus at II, v, chorus)
        [Love]

Conceit, more rich in matter than in words,
  Brags of his substance, not of ornament.
    They 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.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Juliet at II, vi)
        [Conceit]

Here comes the lady. O, so light a foot
  Will ne'er wear out the everlasting flint.
      - Romeo and Juliet

So smile the heavens upon this holy act
  That after-hours with sorrow chide us not!

The sweetest honey
  Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
    And in the taste confounds the appetite.

The sweetest honey
  Is loathsome in his own deliciousness.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, vi)
        [Appetite : Proverbs]

Therefore love moderately: long love doth so;
  Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.

         (Friar Laurence at II, vi) [Love]

These violent delights have violent ends
  And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
    Which, as they kiss, consume.

Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.
      - Romeo and Juliet
