sweet flower, with flowers thy bridal bed I strew- O woe, thy canopy is dust and stones!- Paris to self
I must indeed, and therefore came I hither. Good gentle youth, tempt not a desp’rate man, Fly hence and leave me. Romeo to Paris
How oft when men are at the point of death Have they been marry, which their keepers call A light’ning before death! O how may I Call this a light’ning? Oh my love, my wife… Romeo to self
Oh happy dagger, This is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die. Juliet to self
A dateless bargain to engrossing Death! Come, bitter conduct, come unsavoury guide! Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on The dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! Here’s to my love! O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. Romeo to self
O’ the people in the street cry ‘Romeo,’ some ‘Juliet,’ and some ‘Paris,’ and all run With open outcry toward our monument. Lady Capulet to Prince
I will be brief, for my short date of breath Is not so long as is a tedious tale. Romeo, there dead, was husband to that Juliet, And she, there dead, that Romeo’s faithful wife… Friar Lawrence to Prince
O brother Montague, give me thy hand. This is my daughter’s jointure, for no more Can I demand. Capulet to Montague
There shall no figure at such rate be set As that of true and faithful Juliet. Montague to Capulet
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 pardon’d, and some punished: For never was a story of more woe Than this of Juliet and her Romeo. Prince to all
