It is the east, and Juliet is the sun”



*He is referring to her beauty and all those things associated with sun. Shakespeare deliberately used the sun metaphor to describe Juliet, because he wanted to emphasise her rationality. In his time, the sun represented all that was constant, rational and masculine; the moon, on the other hand, represented the changeable, irrational and feminine.


"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet''



*Juliet knows that the blood feud prevents her from loving a Montague. She ponders it. It's only your name that's the enemy. You are what you are, even though you may be a Montague.

Good night,good night!Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say good night till it morrow.”


*Good night,good night!Parting is so sweetly painful that I say good night until tomorrow.



Wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast.”


*Do something nice and easy because those who are in hurry will fail.
