Quote me Tuesday: Romeo & Juliet


I have now quite exhausted my knowledge of cooking so I will no longer be doing Tasty Tuesday.(in other words, I cannot cook) But on the contrary Quote me Tuesdays, they will be quotes from a book or movie I watched this past week, Enjoy. 


Romeo: (Stands in the garden looking out at the window where Juliet stands leaning upon the railing.)

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? 
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. 
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That though her maid art far more fair than she: 
Be not her maid, since she is envious; 
Her vestal livery is but sick and green
and none but fools do we wear it; cast it off. 
It is my lady, O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were! 
She speaks yet she says nothing what of that? 
Her eye discourses; I will answer it.
I am too bold, 'tis not to me she speaks: 
Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven, 
Having some business, do entreat her eyes
To twinkle in their spheres till they return. 
What if her eyes wore there, they in her head?
The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars,
As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven.
Would through the airy region stream so bright
That birds would sing and think it were not night. 
See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand! 
O, that I were a clove upon that hand, 
That I might touch that cheek!
