More about this Romeo and Juliet quote
As displayed on the poster, the full quote by Juliet reads like this:
“‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy.
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
Juliet (Act 2, Scene 2)
Act 2, Scene 2 is the famous “balcony scene.” Even those who have not read Romeo and Juliet likely know the basic theme of this scene, with Romeo listening to Juliet and then revealing himself from the shadows to speak with her of his love.
