William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which as they kiss consume.

She is all the great heroines of the world in one. She is more than an individual. I love her, and I must make her love me. I want to make Romeo jealous. I want the dead lovers of the world to hear our laughter, and grow sad. I want a breath of our passion to stir dust into consciousness, to wake their ashes into pain.
Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray)

William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Romeo wouldn’t change his mind. That’s why people still remembered his name, always twined with hers
Stephenie Meyer (New Moon (The Twilight Saga, #2))
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs; Being purg'd, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes; Being vex'd, a sea nourish'd with lovers' tears; What is it else? A madness most discreet, A choking gall, and a preserving sweet.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
You are a lover. Borrow Cupid's wings and soar with them above a common bound.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)

O, here Will I set up my everlasting rest, And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last! Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss A dateless bargain to engrossing death!
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Go wisely and slowly. Those who rush stumble and fall.

William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
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; Whole misadventured piteous overthrows Do with their death bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, And the continuance of their parents' rage, Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)

William Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet)
A glooming peace this morning with it brings; The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head: Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things; Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished: For never was a story of more woe Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Oh, I am fortune's fool!
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
If it had been easy for Romeo to get to Juliet, nobody would have cared. Same goes for Cyrano and Don Quixote and Gatsby and their respective paramours. What captures the imagination is watching men throw themselves at a brick wall over and over again, and wondering if this is the time that they won't be able to get back up.
Jodi Picoult (Vanishing Acts)
If I profane with my unworthiest hand This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss. Juliet: Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, Which mannerly devotion shows in this; For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch, And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss. Romeo: Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too? Juliet: Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer. Romeo: O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do; They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair. Juliet: Saints do not move, though grant for prayers' sake. Romeo: Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take. Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged. Juliet: Then have my lips the sin that they have took. Romeo: Sin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged! Give me my sin again. Juliet: You kiss by the book.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
O serpent heart, hid with a flowering face! Did ever dragon keep so fair a cave? Beautiful tyrant! fiend angelical! Dove-feather'd raven! wolvish-ravening lamb! Despised substance of divinest show! Just opposite to what thou justly seem'st, A damned saint, an honourable villain! O nature, what hadst thou to do in hell; When thou didst bower the spirit of a fiend In mortal paradise of such sweet flesh? Was ever book containing such vile matter So fairly bound? O that deceit should dwell In such a gorgeous palace!
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
turn him into stars and form a constellation in his image. His face will make the heavens so beautiful that the world will fall in love with the night and forget about the garish sun.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon, That monthly changes in her circle orb, Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Alas, that love, so gentle in his view, Should be so tyrannous and rough in proof! *It’s sad. Love looks like a nice thing, but it’s actually very rough when you experience it.*
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Sometimes people put up walls, not only to keep people out, but also to see who cares enough to tear them down. Understand?
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
This is what love feels like. To no longer belong to yourself. To be pulled from what you know into what you feel. No wonder people live and die for this feeling.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
I want to make Romeo jealous! I want the dead lovers of the world to hear our laughter, and grow sad. I want a breath of our passion to stir their dust into consciousness, to wake their ashes into pain.
Oscar Wilde
This is why my betrayal was so terrible. Because you believed me incapable of hurting you, and yet I did.
Chloe Gong (These Violent Delights (These Violent Delights, #1))
It’s easy for someone to joke about scars if they’ve never been cut.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Romeo and Juliet is synonymous with “romance” in our culture today. It is seen as the love story in English-speaking culture, an emotional ideal to live up to. Yet when you really get down to what happens in the story, these kids are absolutely out of their fucking minds. And they just killed themselves to prove it!
Mark Manson (The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life)
I must be gone and live, or stay and die.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Death, that hath suck'd the honey of thy breath hath had no power yet upon thy beauty.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Every high school has its Romeo and Juliet, one tragic couple. So does every generation.

Not belonging is a terrible feeling. It feels awkward and it hurts, as if you were wearing someone else's shoes.
Phoebe Stone (The Romeo and Juliet Code (Felicity Bathburn, #1))
I never realized how much it hurt to not be with you until I saw you again, and the pain went away.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
A great idea should always be left to steep like loose tea leaves in a teapot for a while to make sure that the tea will be strong enough and that the idea truly is a great one.
Phoebe Stone (The Romeo and Juliet Code (Felicity Bathburn, #1))
I love you,” he murmurs as he rests his head on my shoulder. “I love you so much. Don’t leave me.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
Yeah, sure, I can do a passionate play with my ex-lover, who broke my heart not once, but twice. No problem. I bang my head against the wall. If there were a Nation of Stupid People, I would be their queen.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
Cassie … We’ve never been over. You know it as well as I do. Even when I was halfway around the world and you hated my guts, we weren’t over. You can feel it between us now. And the closer we are, the stronger it gets.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
without passion, life is meaningless,
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
Have you ever heard of Blue Streak?" I blink at him. "That's the name of a movie?" "Romeo Must Die? Bad Boys? Rush Hour? Rush Hour 2? Rush Hour 3? Actually, Rush Hour 3 wasn't that great. Tangled? "That last one, I believe, is a cartoon about a girl with very long hair, inspired by the German fairy tale Rapunzel." Kenji looks like he might be choking. "A cartoon?" he says, outraged. "Tangled is not a cartoon. Tangled is one of the greatest movies of all time. It's about fighting for freedom and true love.
Tahereh Mafi (Defy Me (Shatter Me, #5))
Back when I still thought her brother was born of a human mother and not spawned straight from Satan’s asshole.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
Cassie, I felt like a ghost while I was away from you. I was. Now, I want to feel real again.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
You've never heard of the Trickster King?" Puck asked, shocked. The girls shook their heads. "The Prince of Fairies? Robin Goodfellow? The Imp?" "Do you work for Santa?" Daphne asked. "I'm a fairy, not an elf!" Puck roared. "You really don't know who I am! Doesn't anyone read the classics anymore? Dozens of writers have warned about me. I'm in the most famous of all of William Shakespeare's plays." "I don't remember any Puck in Romeo and Juliet," Sabrina muttered, feeling a little amused at how the boy was reacting to his non-celebrity. "Besides Romeo and Juliet!" Puck shouted. "I'm the star of a Midsummer Night's Dream!" "Congratulation," Sabrina said flatly. "Never read it.
Michael Buckley (The Fairy-Tale Detectives (The Sisters Grimm, #1))
Care keeps his watch in every old man’s eye, And where care lodges, sleep will never lie.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
There are a million things in this world that can end you, that can in one second obliterate the life you work so hard to keep alive. Our lives are structured around not dying. Eating, sleeping, looking both ways before you cross the street. It's all, all of it, to keep us safe from the thing that we know is going to get us anyway. It doesn't even make sense, if you think about it. It's the world's biggest joke. Our entire lives are set up around not dying, knowing all the while that it's the one thing we can't avoid.
Rebecca Serle (When You Were Mine)
You terrify me. But not enough to make me think you won’t be worth it.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
We're like Romeo and Juliet." "We're both going to die?" he asks in alarm. "Smart Romeo and Juliet." "You're going to kill my cousin?" He seems less alarmed about this. "I take it you don't like your cousin?" "He's a bit of an asshole, if I'm being honest." "I'm glad you've embraced being Juliet.
Alice Winters (A Villain for Christmas (Vexing Villains, #1))
He’s sold his soul to Lucifer in return for sexual powers over frustrated virgins. It would explain a lot.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
I bet he has a very nice penis. I bet it's glorious, like his stupid perfect face, and gorgeous eyes, and muscled body. I bet if he entered his penis in a competition, it would win "Best in Show" and he could walk around with a giant blue ribbon stuck to his crotch.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
He has one of those faces that stops you when you’re flipping through a magazine. Not textbook handsome, but mesmerizing. Like a book cover that begs you to flip it open and get lost in the story.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
I desperately want someone else to ruin me the way he does, but they don't even come close.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
I wonder if he ever looks at me and notices how different I am. How jaded I’ve become. How fragile. I wonder if he ever thinks that after all the effort he’s gone through to be with me again, I’m no longer worth it.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
sometimes it’s not about trying to fix something that’s broken. Sometimes it’s about starting again and building something new. Something better.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
Nick sat on the stairs, completely comatose. He stared straight ahead as if he'd been frozen in place. "Nick? You all right?" He didn't respond. Kyrian moved around him until he stood in front of him. He snapped his fingers in front of Nick's face. "Kid?" Nick blinked before he met Kyrian's gaze. "I'm not worthy," he said in a breathless tone. Baffled by his comment, Kyrian stared at him. "What?" Nick gestured towards his cars. "Dude that's a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, and a Bentley. And I'm not talking the cheap models. Those are the top of the top of the top of the line, fully loaded. I swear, that's real gold trim in the Bugatti. There's more money in metal in here than my brain can even tabulate. Oh my God! I shouldn't even be breathing the same air." Kyrian laughed at his awed tone. "It's all right, Nick. I need you to clean them." "Are you out of your ever-loving mind? What if I scratch them?" "You won't" "Nah I might. Those aren't cars, Kyrian. Those are works of art. I'm talking serious modes of transportation." "I know, and I drive them all the time." "No, no, no, no, no. I can't touch something so fine. I can't" Kyrian cuffed him on the shoulder. "Yes, you can. They don't bite, and they need to be washed.
Sherrilyn Kenyon (Invincible (Chronicles of Nick, #2))
Isn’t that the point of living? To find the one person in all the world who’s your perfect match?” “Actually, Taylor, the point of living is not dying. Romeo and Juliet failed at that part.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
I pick up the phone and jab the answer button. “Listen, dancing queen, I’m drunk, horny, and in no mood to hear about pretty men who aren’t going to fuck me. So for the love of my poor neglected vagina, order yourself another Cosmo and please fuck off.” There’s a pause and an uncertain cough. “I’m more than happy to fuck off, but if it makes a different, I wasn’t going to talk about dicks. I’m far more interested to hear more about your poor neglected vagina. How’s she been? We haven’t had a face-to-face in a while.
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
You two are gorgeous together, like perfect bookends. Sunlight and moonlight. Jupiter and Mars… Mercutio and Romeo.
Karla Nikole (Lore & Lust (Lore & Lust #1))
Sometimes, when I read, I realized I was happiest in a world that wasn’t mine.
Parker S. Huntington (My Dark Romeo (Dark Prince Road, #1))
Books. Rain. Libraries. Driving alone at night with my favorite playlist in the background. Traveling—mainly for the food. But the historic stuff is decent, too.
Parker S. Huntington (My Dark Romeo (Dark Prince Road, #1))
Oh, God! I have an ill-divining soul!
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
He taught me strength. Most importantly, he delivered the cruelest lesson of all—there’s beauty in every beast. Thorns in every rose. And a love story can blossom—even from the carcass of hate.
Parker S. Huntington (My Dark Romeo (Dark Prince Road, #1))
Thou canst not speak of thou dost not feel.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Everyone will hurt you. The key to happiness is finding someone worth enduring the pain.

my balls are bluer than the entire cast of Avatar
Leisa Rayven (Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1))
Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day: It was the nightingale, and not the lark, That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear; Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate-tree: Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
Romeo Void blared out of the sunroof.
Bret Easton Ellis (The Shards)
These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which, as they kiss, consume. —Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
Chloe Gong (These Violent Delights (These Violent Delights, #1))
If you had to change yourself to be accepted, you didn’t need that person in your life in the first place. Because it wasn’t you they wanted to be with. It was their version of you.
Parker S. Huntington (My Dark Romeo (Dark Prince Road, #1))
Was Juliet a better poet than Romeo? If Juliet found out about Rosaline, would she still love Romeo? Should Juliet have given Paris a chance? Why is love so dangerous for Juliet? Why are Juliet’s parents so blind? Was the Nurse Juliet’s friend or enemy? Would Juliet have killed herself if she had been twenty-five years old instead of thirteen?
Anita Diamant (The Boston Girl)
We may not be enemies anymore, Shortbread, but we will never be lovers.
Parker S. Huntington (My Dark Romeo (Dark Prince Road, #1))
Cages aren't made of bars. They're made of thoughts, expectations, and fear.
L.J. Shen (My Dark Romeo (Dark Prince Road, #1))
Jaja, maar Romeo ging niet nr de Delhaize en bracht al helemaal niet de foute champignons mee.
Gaea Schoeters
One woman sent me on a letter written to her by her daughter, and the young girl's words are a remarkable statement about artistic creation as an infinitely versatile and subtle form of communication: '...How many words does a person know?' she asks her mother. 'How many does he use in his everyday vocabulary? One hundred, two, three? We wrap our feelings up in words, try to express in words sorrow and joy and any sort of emotion, the very things that can't in fact be expressed. Romeo uttered beautiful words to Juliet, vivid, expressive words, but they surely didn't say even half of what made his heart feel as if it was ready to jump out of his chest, and stopped him breathing, and made Juliet forget everything except her love? There's another kind of language, another form of communication: by means of feeling, and images. That is the contact that stops people being separated from each other, that brings down barriers. Will, feeling, emotion—these remove obstacles from between people who otherwise stand on opposite sides of a mirror, on opposite sides of a door.. The frames of the screen move out, and the world which used to be partitioned off comes into us, becomes something real... And this doesn't happen through little Audrey, it's Tarkovsky himself addressing the audience directly, as they sit on the other side of the screen. There's no death, there is immortality. Time is one and undivided, as it says in one of the poems. "At the table are great-grandfathers and grandchildren.." Actually Mum, I've taken the film entirely from an emotional angle, but I'm sure there could be a different way of looking at it. What about you? Do write and tell me please..
Andrei Tarkovsky (Sculpting in Time)
What's a little light stabbing between lovers?
Chloe Gong (Our Violent Ends (These Violent Delights, #2))
Why do you worry so much about getting things right?” This question stops me. “I don’t know.” “I think, sometimes, about what it’s like to come from people who have been struggling for so long, you know? My grandparents moving to Argentina after the Spanish Civil War, looking for a better life. And then your parents coming here, and hopefully one day I’ll be able to come here, too. It’s like a big weight, carrying all these generations of worries with us,
Maria E Andreu (Julieta and the Romeos)
For the first time in longer than I care to remember, I wake up early. It’s not the kind of “early” I’ve started to convince myself is good enough—9:00AM instead of 12:00PM, like it’s some grand achievement to defeat the afternoon. It’s not like when I wake up at 5:00AM, anxious and confused, before falling back asleep until 1:00PM, wondering if I was ever awake to begin with. No, today I’m up by 7:00AM, and the ever-present fog in my mind is lessened. That is, until I realize I have no idea what to do with myself at this hour. I don’t know what kind of person is awake at 7:00AM, but it’s not me. The time brings to mind old ladies gardening, good church-going citizens, early morning joggers, and parents with small children. While I am none of those things, renouncing them completely is also a bit much. I am one step away from claiming to be raised and molded by the darkness, and even to myself that sounds both over dramatic and absurd.
Kate King (By Any Other Name: A Deliciously Dark Retelling of Romeo and Juliet (Shakespeare After Dark))
But come what sorrow can, It cannot countervail the exchange of joy That one short minute gives me in her sight. Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love devouring death do what he dare, It is enough I may but call her mine.
William Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet)
I’m no Romeo, but everything about this shit show has to do with our last names, our parents, a vendetta, and the reason why we’re destined to implode.
Kate Stewart (One Last Rainy Day: The Legacy of a Prince (Ravenhood Legacy Book 1))
Mi soledad, o mejor, mi falta de compromisos —aunque monstruosa si se analiza fríamente— es lo único que me da el suficiente dominio sobre mí mismo, como para pensar en escribir. Junto a Bettina soy “humanamente” completo, pero debo entonces forjar un mundo para dos. Un mundo hermoso, no lo niego, pero imposible mientras, por ejemplo, no tenga un centavo. ÉSTA ES LA ÚNICA VERDAD. ¿Y qué sentido tiene el amor si todo depende de esto? ¿Qué sentido tiene la vida? El dinero, la necesidad de mierda de conseguir dinero no tiene nada que ver con el amor. Ni con nada. Lo emputece todo, lo banaliza todo, lo enferma todo. Dios mío, vamos a ver si éste no es el único argumento que justifica la necesidad de hacer una revolución en el mundo, no por amor a la gente, sino para que la gente pueda amar. Qué pasa con Romeo y Julieta si él debe trabajar en el frigorífico o en una oficina y pagar las cuotas de los muebles, o comprar ropa, o sencillamente comer.
Abelardo Castillo (Diarios (1954-1991) (Spanish Edition))
Within the infant rind of this weak flower Poison hath residence, and medicine power.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
