Quotes by Juliet

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.

By any other name would smell as sweet.

O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon,
That monthly changes in her circled orb,
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.

(Act II, Scene 2)

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
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.

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.

But my true love is grown to such excess
I cannot sum up sum of half my wealth.

They may seize
On the white wonder of dear Juliet's hand
And steal immortal blessing from her lips,
Who even in pure and vestal modesty,
Still blush, as thinking their own kisses sin.

(Act III, Scene 3)

See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O, that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!

How silver-sweet sound lovers' tongues by night,
Like softest music to attending ears!

One fairer than my love! the all-seeing sun
Ne'er saw her match since first the world begun.

For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.

O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!

(Act I, Scene 5)
