Romeo and Juliet Quotes.

Romeo and Juliet uses conflict and opposites expand its ideas: 

“Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny” 

“O brawling love, O loving hate” 

“Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health” 

Characters in Romeo and Juliet are not always what they seem: 

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”

Romeo and Juliet explores the complex relationship between fate and free will: 

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life” 

“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 despisèd life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death”
