Quote: ” O brother Montague, give me thy hand.
This is my daughter’s jointure, for no more
Can I demand” – Montague

“O my love, my wife!
Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath,
Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty.
Thou art not conquered. Beauty’s ensign yet
Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks,
And death’s pale flag is not advanced there” – Romeo
