So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows. Love between a man and a dog, a kid and ice-cream, a mother and her family, and love between two selfless people. Eventually, marrying Romeo would detain her from getting married to Paris and being miserable from marrying a man she was not interested in. Romeo: Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take. Juliet was only 13 years old, and has never been in a relationship before.
Friar Lawrence, a man of integrity and wisdom, summarizes the relationship between Romeo and Juliet as nothing more than immature lusting for one another. Love between a man and a dog, a kid and ice-cream, a mother and her family, and love between two selfless people. When one is in love, they will basically do anything to be with the one they love. This was the perfect opportunity for her to escape. Even the language Romeo and Juliet use when they speak is focused solely on appearance and looks. Lastly, they liked the idea of love itself, rather than loving the person. Lust because although this quote is saying they are falling for each other, it does not say that they fell for each other's personality or their intellect; it is saying that the thing they love about each other is their looks which is just a physical attribute.
However, if I could find someone to love just a fraction of the way that Montague loved his Capulet, then marrying her would be worth it. One thing I had trouble with was making sure I had the right supporting quotes. Juliet drinks the potion in the name of Romeo because she does not want to marry Paris and is scared that she might never hear from Romeo again. Within seconds of Romeo and Juliet seeing each other for the first time, they claim to fall in love. The story of two star-crossed lovers, separated by an age-old family feud, which is eventually ended by the death of both Romeo and Juliet, is deeply embedded in our cultural psyche. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she. A couple of days later, Romeo claimed to be deeply in love with Juliet.
But what meaning they give the word is up to them. Either thou or l, or both, must go with him. Capulet wants Juliet to be happy. Not once was a personality trait mentioned, or any other sign of love than physical attractiveness. However, we might be able to get home when the story ends, but if Romeo and Juliet don't meet, then we don't have a story.
The quotes one guided me on how to use punctuation while using quotations. Juliet: Then have my lips the sin that they have took. That which we call a rose, By any other word would smell as sweet; So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd, Retain that dear perfection which he owes Without that title: — Romeo, doff thy name; And for thy name, which is no part of thee, Take all myself. Neither Romeo nor Juliet know what love is. Juliet on the other hand, is not in love with Romeo either. I do not think that Romeo truly loved Juliet, but that he was in love with the idea of being in love.
It is an allegory, a story of true love and sacrifice, that continues to resonate throughout modern time. Thus tragedy strikes a wary, yet inevitable, sentiment every person experiences at least once in their lifetime. Mercutio is saying that Romeo loves often, and that he can give his love to a new girl as he has done in the past. There is also love between Romeo and his dead cousin Mercuric. Juliet is already making plans to kill herself if Romeo is already married while just before that, Romeo is already putting Juliet in the life of his hands. I believe this is most recognisable in the very beginning of the play. Beauty will die when Rosaline does, according to Romeo.
Their decision to spend the rest of their life with each other comes too soon. And for that name which is no part of thee, take all thyself. I also had a little trouble making sure I explained quotes enough without just restating everything that happened in the book.

Did my heart love till now? Romeo describes Juliet as hot as fire, and too beautiful for this world.
Romeo and Juliet was not in love, their relationship was based on physical attraction and lust. Love is more potent than lust, but it is clear that Romeo and Juliet act out of sheer lust, not love. Romeo and Juliet was not a love story at all, although it truly was a tragedy because two young kids took their lives over something they convinced themselves to believe in. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows, Doth with their death bury their parents' strife. Lust is the same as false love, and so this quote can be used as a demonstration of both.
It is nor hand, nor foot, Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part Belonging to a man. This love is better defined as lust, or love at first sight, as Romeo did not even know Rosaline, and had only seen her. After Romeo was banished from Verona, Juliet had come to a crossroads. Friar Lawrence, a man of integrity and wisdom, summarizes the relationship between Romeo and Juliet as nothing more than immature lusting for one another. Therefore love moderately; long love doth so; Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow. It is widely regarded as a classical story of true love, but is it really? This goes down as the greatest love story of all time, but the main problem with the play is the lack of love. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.
He refers to Juliet as the light of his world, and uses colorful imagery to describe her looks. Every time you see it you get fooled into thinking his girlfriend might wake up and stop him. Lust was a theme because while reading the play, I wasn't completely convinced that Romeo and Juliet were in love. The attraction between Romeo and Juliet began with nothing more than a sensation, and can only be considered a prime example of passionate lust. These people would say that love at first sight is not love, but rather a simple human desire, lust. This is an unusual act for the time, but this quote by Capulet to Paris exemplifies the genuine love that a father has for his only daughter.
