Good morning, I am going to start with a quote from the book of Romeo and Juliet, from Friar Lawrence: ‘So soon forsaken? young men's love then lies Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.’ I am talking about Friar Lawrence who is the priest in the play of Romeo and Juliet. I find this character very interesting, firstly because Friar is a wise and very smart but can change personality to a person who is smoking and drinking beer, he is a very strange type of character. The second reason is that he is is able to see into people’s heads and tell what their emotions are just by talking to them.
