ROMEO It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night. Did my heart love till now? JULIET Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer. My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me That I must love a loathèd enemy.

MERCUTIO O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you. She is the fairies' midwife, and she comes In shape no bigger than an agate stone On the forefinger of an alderman, [...] And in this state she gallops night by night Through lovers' brains, and then they dream of love; [...] O'er ladies' lips, who straight on kisses dream, Which oft the angry Mab with blisters plagues Because their breaths with sweetmeats tainted are. [...] This is the hag, when maids lie on their backs, That presses them and learns them first to bear, Making them women of good carriage. This is she— ROMEO MERCUTIO O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you.

ROMEO When the devout religion of mine eye Maintains such falsehood, then turn tears to fire; And these who, often drowned, could never die, Transparent heretics, be burnt for liars. One fairer than my love? The all-seeing sun Ne'er saw her match since first the world begun. (1.2.95-100) Romeo uses religious language to talk about Rosaline CAPULET But saying o'er what I have said before. My child is yet a stranger in the world. She hath not seen the change of fourteen years. Let two more summers wither in their pride
