Tybalt, due to his arrogance, brings the best out of Romeo when he is attempting to engage Romeo in a duel (Shakespeare 3.1). Romeo denies Tybalt's offer to a fight, for obvious reasons. 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.
