Actions, Thoughts, Feelings

"O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?Deny thy father and refuse thy name.Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,And I’ll no longer be a Capulet."

She is in love with Romeo, and is willing to denounce her own family in order to be with him.

"Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,Which mannerly devotion shows in this,For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss."

At first Juliet rebuffs Romeo's advances but eventually succumbs.

"'Tis but thy name that is my enemy.Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.What’s Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!"

Here she is thinking out loud. She is discussing with herself what makes a person a person.
