Romeo and Juliet/#3/Quotes and Answers

Quote: “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs; love, a fire sparkling in lovers’
eyes, being purged, is a sea nourished with loving tears.”

Answer: Act 1, Scene 1, Lines 197-199.  Romeo to Benvolio.  A serious skirmish between servingmen from the houses of Capulet and Montague has been broken up by Verona’s Prince; the Prince is not at all pleased. The Capulets and Montagues pretty much run things in Verona. Romeo doesn’t want to hear about the skirmish, consumed as he is, being “out of favor” with Rosaline. He offers Benvolio this quote.
