THE FATEFUL NIGHT:
Romeo: Oh, she doth teach the tourches to burn bright!It seems she hands upon the cheek of night. Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear, beaty too rich for use, for earth too dear. (Act III. Escena 5).
THE HARSH TRUTH:
NODRIZA: His name is Romeo, and a Montague. The only son of your great enemy. JULIETA: My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknow, and know too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me; that I must love a loathed enemy. (Act. I. Escena 5).
ROMEO: This day's black fate on more days doth depend. This but begins the woe others must end. (Act. III. Escena 1).
FRAY LORENZO: These violent delights have violent ends. And in their triumph die, like fire and powder. Which, as they kiss, consume. (Act II. Escena 6).
THE STOLEN MOMENT:
JULIETA: Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed. If that thy bent of love be honorable, thy purpose marriage, send my word tomorrow. (Act III. Escena 2).
On this fair corse, and, as the custom is,And in her best array, bear her to church.For though some nature bids us all lament,Yet nature’s tears are reason’s merriment. (Act IV. Escena 5).
PRÍNCIPE: A glooming peace this morning with it brings. The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head. Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things. Some shall be pardoned and some punished. For never was a story of more woe. Than this of Juliet and her Romeo. (Act V. Escena 3).
