Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is one of the most popular plays of all time. Today, enjoy some of its best quotes. It’s worth!


Romeo and Juliet by Madox Brown

“For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”

Romeo and Juliet is based on an Italian tale: two enemies families in Verona but their teen members (Romeo and Juliet) will fall in love. Then, a tragic love, absolutely pure and romantic!

“If love be rough with you, be rough with love. Prick love for pricking and you beat love down.”

From the beginning, it was a success and it has been adapted numerous times for stage, film, musical and opera. In the 20th century the play has been adapted in versions as diverse as George Cukor 1936 production, Franco Zeffirelli 1968 version, Baz Luhrmann 1996 movie or recently, Carlo Carlei 2013 version.

Best quotes:

“Two households, both alike in dignity

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life

Whose misadventured piteous overthrows

Do with their death bury their parents’ strife.”

Yes, that was the famous start of the play. Who doesn’t know those verses? However, there are other beautiful quotes. In the end, everyone has its favorite.

“These violent delights have violent ends. And in their triump die, like fire and powder. Which, as they kiss, consume”

“Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. Then your love would also change.”

“Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow.”

“Romeo, Romeo, Romeo! Here’s drink—I drink to thee. “

Finally, our favorite: “There’s an old saying that applies to me: you can’t lose a game if you don’t play the game.”

Which one do you prefer? Enjoy your day!
