Looking for great Romeo Juliet quotes? This famous romance tragedy, Romeo and Juliet was created by William Shakespeare about two young star-crossed lovers whose untimely deaths brought about the unison of their feuding households.

I studied it as a Literature subject as a student. It's probably my most recognized play of William Shakespeare. I remember being stumped by the language used back then. It's only upon deeper study and explanation by my ex-Literature teacher, was I able to grasp most of the words expressed in this dramatic play.

Now going through this collection of quotes, it brought back days of studying it as a subject, and yet made me see that I could better appreciate the dramatic use of language now than when I was younger.

Enjoy these Romeo Juliet quotes!

who is already sick and pale with grief
That thou her maid art far more fair than she.

And pay no worship to the garish sun.
