This shows how the speaker thinks he is being robbed of the sight of reality. He is blinded by his love, and does not know how to see the truth. He uses a desperate and somewhat regretful tone; he says that his love does not correspond with “true sight”, and that all he sees are lies. Love often highlights the better attributes of a person, and hides their flaws, which is exactly what happens to the speaker. He idealizes the woman he loves and sees her to be far better than she actually is.
I give him curses, yet he gives me love... The more I hate, the more follows me... His folly, Helena, is no fault of mine"(1.1.193-200). Indeed, it takes time and courage to express ones own feelings in front of others. Plus, it is even harder to express the feelings about someone that his/her best friend loves, while they do not.

Tybalt continues to harass Romeo while Romeo is simply complementing Tybalt in return.We see the best is brought out of Romeo as he is showing maternity and respect for his ‘Family.’ Overall, love is a marvelous force for good because it is everlasting through time and hardships, it brings people together, and it has the potential to bring the best out of people.

Alcée asks Calixta about marrying Bobinôt because he knows that although he and Caixta have a natural love for each other, they cannot be together because of their societal standards. Also, the author writes, “Calixta’s senses were reeling; and they well-nigh left her when she felt Alcée’s lips brush her ear like the touch of a rose” (431). This is yet another example of Calixta’s and Alcée’s forbidden love because they express such strong feelings for each other, but they cannot actually be together. After Bobinôt asks Calixta to kiss him, she says, “I don’t want to kiss you, Bobinôt, not today. Some other time.
Romeo and Juliet claim that they love each other, but that isn’t possible. How can they possibly be in love when they have only known each other for a few short hours before declaring their undying love and uniting in Holy Matrimony? Love is a limitless and condition-less devotion, based on an intimate knowledge, to another person, whereas lust is an emotional obsession based on physical chemistry and appearance.
