During the famous play Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare established the idea that using decisions based on emotions such as grief and anger, can lead to unthoughtful and poor decisions.

Romeo decided that he was in love with Juliet upon sight without knowing who she was (Shakespeare 924). This was a terrible choice Romeo had literally no idea who she was and this could have stopped the whole conflict of the play. Romeo then ignored his dreams which he believed told his destiny (Shakespeare 921-1009). While if Romeo listened to these dreams which he believed told the future he would have been much more cautious because he would know that he was going to die prematurely. Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death.
An example of this is when Romeo and Juliet go to Friar Lawrence's cell to get married. He explains to Romeo that “These violent delights have violent ends / And in their triumph die, like fire and powder” (2.6.9-10). This quote relates to the thesis statement because it foreshadows the ending of how Romeo and Juliet have an end that is dramatic and lead to there death and the death of those close to them.

The death of Romeo and Juliet, I believe was done by Romeo and Juliet themselves. I believe it was them for the following reasons, their rash actions, all of their secrets, and the family conflict. These things lead to the tragedy of their death, though the story is sometimes seen as a love story, today we will be talking about their death.

When Juliet demands Friar give her a solution for her problem, he responds: “A thing like death to chide away this shame, / That cop’st with death himself to scape from it” (4.1.74-75). The friar could have taken the situation of Juliet wanting to die by telling her that death is not the solution and to talk with her parents and tell the truth. Instead, the Friar decided to take this simple situation and made it complicated by telling Juliet she needs to fake her own death. Then, when Romeo and the Nurse are concerned about Romeo and Juliet’s Marriage, the Friar thinks he can fix the situation by saying: “To blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends, / Beg pardon of the Prince, and call thee back” (3.3.151-152).

A man of whom is supposed to help God’s loving children and followers and a man whom is supposed to know what is best when it comes to being asked for advice.
