"To be or not to be: that is the question". This famous line from Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet comes from Friar Laurence who asks Prince Romeo if he is willing to die for love. "A glutton and a drunkard": this is what Paris calls Romeo after seeing him eat and drink too much at a feast where he has gone with Lady Montague's permission. It means he is a bad person.
Romeo dies because of a poison called Roman blood which is given to him by Paris before their marriage. Juliet also dies young. Her death sentence is changed into a long sleep because she has only lived nine years instead of being dead for three days like her cousin Tybalt.
Shakespeare wrote several other plays after Romeo and Juliet so these two characters have been replaced by others in the stories. But they remain stars in the world of theater because people love them even today.
Juliet's most famous quotes My one and only love arose from my one and only aversion! Too soon, perceived as unknown, and discovered too late! The tremendous development of love is a sign to me that I must love a despised adversary. (Scene 5 of Act 1) Romeo, Romeo, Romeo! Romeo, whence art thou? Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou wilt not, vow my love, and I will no longer be a Capulet. (Act 4)

A phrase to demonstrate Romeo's love-sickness and depression. Alas, that love, whose vision is yet muffled, should see paths to his will without eyes! Where should we go to eat? —Oh, me! What kind of scuffle was this? But tell me not to, since I've heard it all.
Romeo is a character in the Italian poem "Romeo and Juliet". The story tells of two young lovers from different families who are torn apart by violence when Romeo goes on a mission with the Capulet clan to protect their reputation after finding out that they were not responsible for the death of someone he loved. After Romeo dies, Juliet lives on but is sick with a disease that will cause her to die too. Before she passes away, she asks her nurse to find a man who will marry her so her family can have a heir again.
Here are the first lines of the poem: "Mio cor gentil, o dolce stella!" - My gentle heart, or sweet star!
The quotation to show that Romeo is lovesick and depressed appears in Act II, Scene 5. It is said by Friar Laurence when he comes to visit Romeo in his cell before the duel with Tybalt. Laurence tries to persuade Romeo to abandon his plan to kill Tybalt, but Romeo won't change his mind.
"For never was a narrative of deeper misery than this of Juliet and her Romeo." Don't swear by the moon, for she changes all the time. Then your love would shift as well. " "Do you, sir, bite your thumb at us?" I don't think so.
"Then, why do you do it?" The man asks me. I don't know why I do it.
"Because I can." Says the boy. We laugh.
And then we go our separate ways. Back to where I came from, there were people who lived and died without ever having loved or been loved back. But now they have a story. Me, I've got no story. No story but the one that's in my head. If only they knew how much I loved them...
