Romeo and Juliet Act Four Quote Cards

“Immoderately she weeps for Tybalt’s death, And therefore have I little talked of love, For Venus smiles not in a house of tears.

Now do you know the reason of this haste” (4,1,6-15). Who: ParisWhere: Act 4 Scene 1To: Friar Lawrence

Hold, then. Go home, be merry. Give consent To marry Paris. Wednesday is tomorrow. Tomorrow night look that thou lie alone. Let not the Nurse lie with thee in thy chamber. Take thou this vial, being then in bed, And this distillèd liquor drink thou off, When presently through all thy veins shall run A cold and drowsy humor, for no pulse Shall keep his native progress, but surcease. No warmth, no breath shall testify thou livest. The roses in thy lips and cheeks shall fade To wanny ashes, thy eyes’ windows fallLike death when he shuts up the day of life. Each part, depriv’d of supple government, Shall, stiff and stark and cold, appear like death. And in this borrowed likeness of shrunk deathThou shalt continue two and forty hours, And then awake as from a pleasant sleep. Now, when the bridegroom in the morning comesTo rouse thee from thy bed, there art thou dead. Then, as the manner of our country is, In thy best robes uncovered on the bier Thou shalt be borne to that same ancient vaultWhere all the kindred of the Capulets lie. In the meantime, against thou shalt awake, Shall Romeo by my letters know our drift, And hither shall he come, and he and IWill watch thy waking, and that very night Shall Romeo bear thee hence to Mantua. And this shall free thee from this present shame, If no inconstant toy, nor womanish fear, Abate thy valor in the acting it” (4,1,89-120). Who: Friar LawrenceWhere: Act 4 Scene 1To: Juliet
