Romeo and Juliet Acts 1-3

On Lammas Eve at night shall she be fourteen.That shall she, marry, I remember it well.’Tis since the earthquake now eleven years…” Nurse
“This, by his voice, should be a Montague. Fetch me my rapier, boy. What dares the slave.Come hither, covered with an antic face…” Tybalt
“The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night, Chequ’ring the Eastern clouds with streaks of light;An flecked darkness like a drunkard reelsFrom forth day’s path and Titan’s fiery wheels.” Friar
“But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun!” Romeo
“A plague o’ both your houses!They have made worms’ meat of me.” Mercutio
“If ever you disturb our streets again,Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.” Prince
“O serpent heart, hid with a flow’ring face! Did ever dragon keep so far a cave? Beautiful tyrant fiend angelical! Dove-feathered raven wolfish-ravening lamb! Despised substance of divinest show Just opposite to what thou justly seemst ,A damned saint, an honorable villain!” Juliet
“Thou canst not teach me to forget.” Romeo
“I fear. Too early; for my mind misgives, Some consequence, yet hanging in the stars, Shall bitterly begin his fearful date…” Romeo
“Good Pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,Which mannerly devotion shows in this;For saints have hands that pilgrim’s hands do touch,And palm to palm is holy palmers’ kiss.” Juliet
“Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon…” Romeo
“Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be…” Juliet
“Romeo! humors! madman! passions! lover! […] Young Adam Cupid, he that shot so trim…” Mercutio
“Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.” Friar
“Then let love-devouring death do what he dare It is enough I may but call her mine.” Romeo
“This precious book of love, this unbound lover, To beautify him only lacks a cover.” Lady Capulet
“…O, be some other name! What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.” Juliet
“O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you. She is a fairies midwife….” Mercutio
“My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready to stand To smooth that rough touch with tender kiss.” Romeo
“My only love, sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late!” Juliet
Give me my Romeo and when he shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars And he will make the face of heaven so fine…” Juliet
“Romeo is ‘banished’ – to speak that word Is father, mother, Tybalt, Romeo, Juliet All slain, all dead.” Juliet
“Compare her face with some that I will show, And I will make thee think thy swan a crow.” Benvolio
