    well i won't give quotes as i don't have the play to hand. You could look at the violence of Capulet and Juliet- emotional and physical in that he strikes her and his wife after her defiance. You have the fight at the beginning which to me is interesting as it's like the two families just search to fight, violence is almost second nature- Tybalt uses religion to justify?, the fight where mercutio dies, violence spreading to outside the two families leading to the dramatic plague bit. And you have the violence with Romeo killing Tybalt out of anger- loss of innocence, becomes what he tried to avoid. Lastly maybe the death of Romeo and Juliet- violent deaths, the desperation they both feel. I dunno what your question is but hope that helps.
