It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she:- Romeo

These violent delights have violent ends[...]therefore, love moderately. -Friar Lawrence

Foreshadowing if ever there were an example. Friar Lawrence commenting on how passion can lead to violence- he warns the young lovers to 'love moderately' that is, slow down!

Young men's love lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.- Friar Lawrence .

This one is interesting as its a commentary on how Friar Lawrence views young love- young men are still in the phase of lusting with their eyes (the physical form) as opposed to loving for personality- I find this interesting as young men nowadays are still very much guilty of the same!

Hi Shelley16, 

Here's a couple of good quotes and how to use them: 

1. "What's in a name? That which we call a rose, By any other word would smell as sweet." Here Juliet is reflecting on the fact that people should not be defined by just their names. It's basically a shakespearen way of saying 'don't judge a book by it's cover'. By saying this Juliet believes people should be judged on their character and who they are rather than their names. This shows how independent Juliet is and how fierce her love for Romeo is. 

2. "Good Night, Good Night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow." This is a good quote to show how the themes of saddness and happiness overlap, as Juliet is upset about being away from her love Romeo but by calling it 'sweet sorrow' this shows she's feeling happy about their next meeting which will be their wedding. 

Hope this helped and Good Luck!
