From Adam and Eve to chemsex: 80 great quotes about love and romance

The play follows the lives and deaths of Romeo and Juliet, two young star-crossed lovers from feuding families in Verona. What light through yonder window breaks? These violent delights have violent ends, And in their triumph die; like fire and powder, Which, as they kiss, consume: the sweetest honey Is loathsome in his own deliciousness, And in the taste confounds the appetite: Therefore love moderately: long love doth so. Spoken by Friar Lawrence before he marries Romeo off to Juliet, this short speech counsels the young lover to temper his amorous passions. In this quote, the friar uses the example of honey, which, although delicious to our taste buds, can cause serious stomach pains if we eat too much too quickly. It is Friar Lawrence who agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet, even though he knows these two lovers only met a few weeks ago. This love that thou hast shown Doth add more grief to too much of mine own.

Conflict - Romeo and Juliet

I'll look to like, if looking liking move: But no more deep will I endart mine eye Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, Which mannerly devotion shows in this; Go ask his name: if he be married. My grave is like to be my wedding bed. My only love sprung from my only hate!
