My essay title is the above but I am really stuck on what to put for act 3 scene 5 in R&J. Here is the part I need to analyse:
JULIET
Wilt thou be gone? It is not yet near day.
It was the nightingale, and not the lark,
That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear.
Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate tree.
Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.
ROMEO
It was the lark, the herald of the morn,
No nightingale. Look, love, what envious streaks
Do lace the severing clouds in yonder east.
Night’s candles are burnt out, and jocund day
Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain tops.
I must be gone and live, or stay and die.
JULIET
Yon light is not daylight, I know it, I.
It is some meteor that the sun exhales
To be to thee this night a torchbearer,
And light thee on thy way to Mantua.
Therefore stay yet. Thou need’st not to be gone.
ROMEO
Let me be ta'en. Let me be put to death.
I am content, so thou wilt have it so.
I’ll say yon grey is not the morning’s eye.
'Tis but the pale reflex of Cynthia’s brow.
Nor that is not the lark, whose notes do beat
The vaulty heaven so high above our heads.
I have more care to stay than will to go.
Come, death, and welcome! Juliet wills it so.—
How is ’t, my soul? Let’s talk. It is not day.


At the moment, i have decided love is presented as being equal... Can you find any quotation in the above scene to support my argument?

Thank you so much!

I asked for one quotation...
Yeah, exactly. If you asked for one (you put "any"), then why can't yourself do it if it's only one quotation?

Point proven. If you're stuck fair enough, but don't get other people to do your work for you. It's pure laziness.

I will rectify my previous point with instead of any just one quotation. I see where you are coming from but I wouldn't have asked if I wasn't desperate.
