The best Romeo and Juliet quotes

Care keeps his watch in every old man's eye, And, where care lodges, sleep will never lie.


Wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast.


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


These violent delights have violent ends<br/> And in their triump die, like fire and powder<br/> Which, as they kiss, consume.


Parting is such sweet sorrow.
