Romeo & Juliet Pictures

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 starcross'd lovers take their life
Who's misadventured piteous overthrows
Doth with their death bury their parents strife

The fearful passage of their death-marked love
And the continuance of their parent's rage
Which but their children's end naught could remove
Is now the two hour's traffic of our stage

The which if you with patient ears attend
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend

My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen, and known to late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me
That I must love a loathed enemy.-Juliet

I fear, too early; for my mind misgives
Some consequence yet hanging in the stars
Shall bitterly begin his fearful date
With this night's revels, and expire the term
Of a despised life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death
But He that hath the steerage of my course.-Romeo

"'Tis my name that is my enemy;
Thou art myself, though not a Montague."-Juliet

"A dog of the house of Montague moves me!"

"Farewell, farewell! One kiss, and I'll descend." -Romeo
