Action: Then have my lips the sin that they have took.

Thinking: 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

Feeling: I'll look to like, if looking liking move. But no more deep will I endart mine eye Than your consent gives strength to make it fly.
