Tybalt: What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds?

Romeo: But soft; what light through yonder window breaks? It is my lady! O, it is my love. O that she knew she were.

Narrator: 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 / Whose misadventured piteous overthrows / Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
