My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me That I must love a loathed enemy
His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy
Blister'd be thy tongue For such a wish! He was not born to shame. Upon his brow shame is asham'd to sit; For 'tis a throne where honour may be crown'd Sole monarch of the universal earth. O, what a beast I was to chide at him!
There's no trust, no faith, no honesty in men; all perjur'd, All forsworn, all naught, all dissemblers. Ah, where's my man? Give me some aqua vita; These griefs, these woes, these sorrows, make me old. Shame come to Romeo!
Good father, I beseech you on my knees, Hear me with patience but to speak a word
Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch! I tell thee what: get thee to church o' Thursday , or never after look me in the face. Speak not, reply not, do not answer me! My fingers itch. Wife, we scarce thought us blest That God had lent us but this only child; But now I see this one is one too much, And that we have a curse in having her. Out on her, hilding!
In Act 01 Scene 05, Romeo and Juliet fall in love, but later find out that their families are enemies. This is an external, man vs. society conflict. The Montagues and the Capulets have been fighting for an extensive amount of time and their never-ending feud continues to present day. Romeo and Juliet first meet at a party at Lord Capulet's house. After sharing a dance together, they acknowledge their newly-found feelings for each other. As Romeo is leaving the party, Juliet's nurse informs Romeo of Juliet's parentage. When Romeo leaves the party, Juliet asks her nurse who he is, and her nurse tells her that his name is Romeo and he is part of the Montague family. The Montague-Capulet quarrel does not allow Romeo and Juliet to openly be together, despite their love for each other.
In Act 03 Scene 01, Tybalt starts an argument with Romeo and Mercutio. The argument leads to the deaths of Tybalt and Mercutio and the banishment of Romeo. Juliet learns about this in Scene 02 of Act 03 from her nurse. At first, Juliet furiously criticizes Romeo because he killed her cousin. She is upset that her cousin was murdered at the hands of her husband. Juliet calls Romeo a "Fiend angelical!" and "A damned saint, an honourable villain!" She cannot comprehend how a charming person, such as Romeo, can be two-faced. However, when Juliet's nurse speaks ill of Romeo, Juliet defends Romeo's actions. She says that Tybalt would've killed Romeo, if Romeo hadn't murdered him first. She believes that Romeo is more important to her than Tybalt was. Therefore, this is an internal, man vs. self conflict because Juliet does not know whether to grieve for Tybalt's death or love Romeo even if he killed her cousin.
In Act 03 Scene 05, Juliet and her father argue about Paris' proposed marriage to Juliet. This is an external, man vs. man conflict. Juliet is already secretly-married to Romeo and does not want to betray him by marrying someone else. Lord Capulet, however, wants to marry off Juliet as soon as possible to Paris because he is a wealthy and handsome young man. Capulet does not want Juliet to die unwed, as Tybalt had. Juliet pleads for her father to reconsider his decision, but he threatens to disown her if she does not marry Paris. This presents a conflict for Juliet, who has to decide whether to stay loyal to her husband or to her parents.
