1213
    At lovers’ perjuries,
They say, Jove laughs. 1
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2. 2
1214
    Rom. Lady, by yonder blessed moon I swear,
That tips with silver all these fruit-tree tops—
Jul. O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon,
That monthly changes in her circled orb,
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2. 3
1215
    The god of my idolatry.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2. 4

    Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be
Ere one can say, “It lightens.”
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2. 5
1217
    This bud of love, by summer’s ripening breath,
May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2. 6
1218
    How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night,
Like softest music to attending ears!
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2. 7
1219
    Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2.
1220
    O, mickle is the powerful grace that lies
In herbs, plants, stones, and their true qualities:
For nought so vile that on the earth doth live
But to the earth some special good doth give,
Nor aught so good but strain’d from that fair use
Revolts from true birth, stumbling on abuse;
Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied;
And vice sometimes by action dignified.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 3.
1221
    Care keeps his watch in every old man’s eye,
And where care lodges, sleep will never lie.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 3.
1222
    Thy old groans ring yet in my ancient ears.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 3.
1223
    Stabbed with a white wench’s black eye.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 4.

    The courageous captain of complements.
          Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 4.
