Scopri Verona

Juliet: who are you, so hidden by the night, stumbling in my thoughts most hidden?
Romeo: I can not tell who they are by using a name. Because my name, beloved saint, is hateful to myself, because it is an enemy to thee. And yet I tear the paper where you had written.
“William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet”
