Paris

Younger than she are happy mothers made

Read the Quote

Paris
Younger than she are happy mothers made.
Capulet 
And too soon marred are those so early made.
Earth hath swallowed all my hopes but she;
She’s the hopeful lady of my earth.
But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart;
My will to her consent is but a part.

I come to speak with Paris

Read the Quote

Pandarus
I come to speak with Paris
from the Prince Troilus. I will make a complimental
assault upon him, for my business seethes.
Man
Sodden business! There’s a stewed phrase indeed.
 Enter Paris and Helen with Attendants.
Pandarus
Fair be to you, my lord, and to all this fair
company!

Health to you, valiant sir

Read the Quote

Aeneas
Health to you, valiant sir,
During all question of the gentle truce;
But when I meet you armed, as black defiance
As heart can think or courage execute.
Diomedes
The one and other Diomed embraces.
Our bloods are now in calm, and, so long, health;
But when contention and occasion meet,
By Jove,

And tell me, noble Diomed, faith, tell me true

Read the Quote

Paris
And tell me, noble Diomed, faith, tell me true,
Even in the soul of sound good-fellowship,
Who, in your thoughts, deserves fair Helen best,
Myself or Menelaus?
Diomedes
Both alike.
He merits well to have her that doth seek her,
Not making any scruple of her soilure,
With such a hell of pain and world of charge;

Sweet flower, with flowers thy bridal bed I strew

Read the Quote

Sweet flower, with flowers thy bridal bed I strew
(O woe, thy canopy is dust and stones!)
Which with sweet water nightly I will dew,
Or, wanting that, with tears distilled by moans.
The obsequies that I for thee will keep
Nightly shall be to strew thy grave and weep.

O, I am slain! If thou be merciful

Read the Quote

Paris
O, I am slain! If thou be merciful,
Open the tomb; lay me with Juliet.  He dies.
Romeo
In faith, I will.—Let me peruse this face.
Mercutio’s kinsman, noble County Paris!
What said my man when my betossèd soul
Did not attend him as we rode? I think
He told me Paris should have married Juliet.
