  • Ha, banishment? be merciful, say death; For exile hath more terror in his look, Much more than death; do not say banishment.
  • And sayest thou yet that exile is not death!
  • Hence-banished is banish’d from the world, And world’s exile is death,—then banished Is death mis-term’d: calling death banishment, Thou cutt’st my head off with a golden axe, And smil’st upon the stroke that murders me.
  • Alas, my liege, my wife is dead to-night; Grief of my son’s exile hath stopp’d her breath: What further woe conspires against mine age?
  • And for that offence Immediately we do exile him hence: I have an interest in your hate’s proceeding, My blood for your rude brawls doth lie a-bleeding; But I’ll amerce you with so strong a fine That you shall all repent the loss of mine: I will be deaf to pleading and excuses; Nor tears nor prayers shall purchase out abuses, Therefore use none: let Romeo hence in haste, Else, when he is found, that hour is his last.
  • …thee, man! thy Juliet is alive, For whose dear sake thou wast but lately dead; There art thou happy: Tybalt would kill thee, But thou slewest Tybalt; there art thou happy too: The law, that threaten’d death, becomes thy friend, And turns it to exile; there art thou happy: A pack of blessings lights upon thy back; Happiness courts thee in her best array; But, like a misbehav’d and sullen wench, Thou pout’st upon thy fortune and thy love:— Take heed, take heed, for such die miserable.
