A short quote from Romeo and Juliet

From Act II, sc. 3, among the many lovely lines spoken by Juliet while she was out on her balcony. You may recall that we discussed Romeo and Juliet during Brush Up Your Shakespeare Month.

Here's a great quote, and one that is known to come up in everyday conversation:

What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet[.]


Sorry it's so late in the day - I've got a cold and it's kicking my ass. But I'll be back tomorrow with Chapter Four of Persuasion by Jane Austen, wherein we learn the object of Anne Elliot's affection.
