I'm doing my GCSEs in 2018 but I've got my Pre Public Exams in June, so I'm starting to make notes. I want to get a really good grade in English Literature next year (8/9), but I have to learn key quotes from three texts: Romeo and Juliet, An Inspector Calls and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde. I've annotated all of these texts but I feel as if I've picked out too much, and I won't be able to memorise all of them. If you have a list of key quotes for each important character that you don't mind sharing, please reply! Thank you in advance!

Anyone have a list of quotes for Romeo and Juliet? I need ones which you can write a lot about such as "Juliet: O serpent heart hid with a flowering face! ... honourable villain... damned saint"

Thanks

"Arm'd" - Romeo (Talking about Rosaline being armed against any affection shown by Romeo due to her swearing chaste)
"Saint seducing gold" - Romeo
"Saints lips... Holy palmers kiss" - Romeo
"Loves sweet bait" - Juliet
"So soon forgotten?" - Friar
"Pure love" - Friar
"Love moderately" - Friar
"Prick for a picking" - Mercutio

Hate

"Ancient grudge" - Prologue
"Bite my thumb" - Sampson
"Fetch me my rapier" - Tybalt
"My only love sprung from my only hate"
"Peace? I hate the word. As I hate hell, all Montagues and thee"

Fate

"A pair of star crossed lovers" - Prologue
"Hanging in the stars" - Romeo
"My grave is like to be my wedding bed" - Juliet
"Unhappy fortune" - Friar
"Higher power" - Friar
"I am fortunes fool!" - Romeo
"I defy you stars!" - Romeo

Family

"Two households, both alike in dignity" - Prologue

"Wherefore art thou Romeo" - Juliet
"Fetch me my longsword, ho!" - Capulet
"Disobedient wretch!" - Capulet
"That villain cousin would have killed my husband" - Juliet
"Ill give you to my friend!" - Capulet

I would also write my analysis but its much better to analyse quotes in your own way.

Just make quotes that link to the theme/context of the play but also have a lot of devices in them and cover key events in the play.
