Romeo and Juliet Quotes Act 5

If I may trust the flattering truth of sleep,My dreams presage some joyful news at hand.My bosom’s lord sits lightly in his throne,And all this day an unaccustomed spiritLifts me above the ground with cheerful thoughts.I dreamt my lady came and found me dead—Strange dream, that gives a dead man leave to think—And breathed such life with kisses in my lipsThat I revived and was an emperor. Romeo
Is it e’en so? Then I defy you, stars! Romeo
Therefore hence, be gone.But if thou, jealous, dost return to pryIn what I farther shall intend to do,By heaven, I will tear thee joint by jointAnd strew this hungry churchyard with thy limbs.The time and my intents are savage, wild,More fierce and more inexorable farThan empty tigers or the roaring sea. Romeo
Thou detestable maw, thou womb of death,Gorged with the dearest morsel of the earth,Thus I enforce thy rotten jaws to open,And in despite I’ll cram thee with more food! Romeo
I beseech thee, youth,Put not another sin upon my headBy urging me to fury. O, be gone!By heaven, I love thee better than myself,For I come hither armed against myself.Stay not, be gone. Live, and hereafter sayA madman’s mercy bid thee run away. Romeo
O, give me thy hand,One writ with me in sour misfortune’s book.I’ll bury thee in a triumphant grave.A grave? Oh, no. A lantern, slaughtered youth,For here lies Juliet, and her beauty makesThis vault a feasting presence full of light. Romeo
O my love, my wife!Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath,Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty.Thou art not conquered. Romeo
Oh, hereWill I set up my everlasting rest,And shake the yoke of inauspicious starsFrom this world-wearied flesh Romeo
Eyes, look your last.Arms, take your last embrace. And, lips, O youThe doors of breath, seal with a righteous kissA dateless bargain to engrossing death.Come, bitterconduct, come, unsavoury guide.Thou desperate pilot, now at once run onThe dashing rocks thy seasick, weary bark.Here’s to my love! (drinks the poison) O true apothecary,Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. Romeo
Lady, come from that nestOf death, contagion, and unnatural sleep.A greater power than we can contradictHath thwarted our intents Friar Laurence
O churl, drunk all, and left no friendly dropTo help me after? I will kiss thy lips.Haply some poison yet doth hang on them,To make me die with a restorative. Juliet
This is the place. There, where the torch doth burn Balthasar
Seal up the mouth of outrage for a while,Till we can clear these ambiguitiesAnd know their spring, their head, their true descent,And then will I be general of your woes,And lead you even to death. Meantime forbear,And let mischance be slave to patience.—Bring forth the parties of suspicion. Prince Escalus
All this I know, and to the marriageHer Nurse is privy. And if aught in thisMiscarried by my fault, let my old lifeBe sacrificed some hour before his timeUnto the rigor of severest law. Friar Laurence
Where be these enemies?—Capulet! Montague!See what a scourge is laid upon your hate,That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love!And I, for winking at your discords, tooHave lost a brace of kinsmen. All are punished. Prince Escalus
O brother Montague, give me thy hand.This is my daughter’s jointure, for no moreCan I demand. Lord Capulet
But I can give thee more,For I will raise her statue in pure gold,That whiles Verona by that name is known,There shall no figure at such rate be setAs that of true and faithful Juliet. Lord Montague
As rich shall Romeo’s by his lady’s lie,Poor sacrifices of our enmity. Lord 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 pardoned, and some punishèd.For never was a story of more woeThan this of Juliet and her Romeo. Prince Escalus
