"Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, whose misadventured piteous overthrows doth, with their death, bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-marked love and the continuance of their parents' rage, which, but their children's end, naught could remove, is now the two hours' traffic of our stage."
Best quotes from Romeo
"Did my heart love 'til now? Forswear its sight. For I never saw true beauty 'til this night."
"If I profane with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine, the gentle sin is this. My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss."
"But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun."
"Is love a tender thing? It is too rough, too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn."
Best quotes from Juliet
"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."
"My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me that I must love a loathed enemy."
"Goodnight, goodnight! Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow."
"O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon, who monthly changes in her circled orb, lest that thy love prove likewise variable."
