“Despised substance of divinest show! Just opposite to what thou justly seemst! A damned saint, an honourable villain!

“Blistered by thy tongue for such a wish! O what a beast was I to chide at him!”

This quote is said by Juliet after the Nurse tells her that Romeo killed Tybalt. Shakespeare uses this oxymoron to show that Juliet is immature and can’t make up her mind about whether or not she loves Romeo.

She says these two quotes because she is confused and loves both Romeo and Tybalt, but she doesn’t know if she should be upset with Romeo or stay on his side. This is also foreshadowing because it shows that their relationship has many problems and it shows that it probably won’t last too long and will end in tragedy.
