Are there quotes which portray friendship in Romeo and Juliet?
Various friendships are implied throughout Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Benvolio and Mercutio are friends with Romeo. The Nurse is Juliet's closest friend and confidant and she is also close to Tybalt. Lord Capulet refers to Paris as his friend when he is insisting that Juliet marry the Count. Friar Lawrence could also be considered friends with Romeo and Juliet.
In Act I, Scene 1, Benvolio, who is also Romeo's cousin, offers friendly advice about women. Romeo is depressed because Rosaline doesn't love him, so Benvolio tells him to look at other women when they go to Capulet's party. He says,
At this same ancient feast of Capulet’s
Sups the fair Rosaline whom thou so loves,
With all the admirèd beauties of Verona.
Go thither, and with unattainted eye
Compare her face with some that I shall show,
And I will make thee think thy swan a crow.
You are a lover. Borrow Cupid’s wings
And soar with them above a common bound.
Thou wast the prettiest babe that e’er I nursed.
I’ faith, I am sorry that thou art not well.
Sweet, sweet, sweet nurse, tell me, what says my
O Tybalt, Tybalt, the best friend I had!
O courteous Tybalt, honest gentleman,
That ever I should live to see thee dead!
Thursday is near. Lay hand on heart; advise.
An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend.
Give me, give me! O, tell not me of fear!
