Does any body know any useful quotes from romeo and juliet?
I found many Romeo and Juliet quotes and explanations on Shmoop. Here’s one:
Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed.
If that thy bent of love be honourable,
Thy purpose marriage, send me word to-morrow,
By one that I'll procure to come to thee,
Where and what time thou wilt perform the rite;
And all my fortunes at thy foot I'll lay
And follow thee my lord throughout the world.
This quote shows that Juliet is well ahead of her time; she transgresses into male territory by pretty much proposing to Romeo once he tells her he loves her. In her eyes marriage and love are inseparable and she is not afraid of speaking her mind or seeming too forward by laying her intentions and expectations bare.
i've always found the prologue very easy to quote from in an exam, it's easy to apply it to many different themes, especially love or fate. But there are loads of quotes you can use throughout the play:
"Look, love, what envious streaks do lace the severing clouds in yonder East"
"More light and light: more dark and dark our woes"
"He jests at scars that never felt a wound"
"BENVOLIO- What sadness lenghthens Romeo's hours?
ROMEO- Not having that which having makes them short."
"Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs; being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes; being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears."
"With love's light wings did I o'erperch these walls. For stony limits cannot hold out love"
JULIET- Hath Romeo slain himself? Say thou but 'Ay' and that bare vowel 'I' shall poison more than the death-darting eye of cockatrice.
I hope these will be helpful to you! Good luck :)
