Vincentio. Repent you, fair one, of the sin you carry?

Juliet. I do; and bear the shame most patiently.

And try your penitence, if it be sound,
Or hollowly put on.

Juliet. I'll gladly learn.

Vincentio. Love you the man that wrong'd you?

Vincentio. So then it seems your most offenceful act
Was mutually committed?

Juliet. Mutually.

II,3,1004

Vincentio. 'Tis meet so, daughter: but lest you do repent,
As that the sin hath brought you to this shame,
Which sorrow is always towards ourselves, not heaven,
Showing we would not spare heaven as we love it,
But as we stand in fear,—

Juliet. I do repent me, as it is an evil,
And take the shame with joy.

(stage directions). [Exit]

Juliet. Must die to-morrow! O injurious love,
That respites me a life, whose very comfort
Is still a dying horror!
