Love Moderately

When Friar Lawrence tells Romeo and Juliet to love moderately I think it is great advice. He wants their relationship to last. He thinks they are moving too fast and if they are too over the top then it won’t last and it will end violently. I think that most likely Romeo and Juliet will not follow this advice because they have already created habits of being very dramatic and over exaggerated in their love lives and so they will most likely continue to do so. They will either have to learn to love moderately or their love will die. In Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence says, “The sweetest honey is loathsome in his own deliciousness, And in the taste confounds the appetite.” I think that what he means by this is that now that they found one another they will only want for each other no one else and nothing else will compare to the sweetness of their love. Image result for two people in a heart

    I agree with all of this except for when you said their love would be sweeter than anything else. Yes, it probably would be but I think that Lawrence is saying too much of a good thing would be bad. If they are too extreme with their love, it won’t end well. ‘the taste confounds (confuses) the appetite’

    But great job! And who knows you could be right on that one because Shakespeare is pretty hard for me to understand haha

    AWESOME! It could be possible. I think Shakespeare could mean that but i think it could also mean that by being so sweet to each other that you lose any relation with anyone else.

    i personally think that romeo needs to chill out and needs to stop worrying every time his lover leaves. And they aren’t ready to get married yet.
