Well, the easiest two have to do with desire: the speed with which Romeo and Juliet fall for one another, and the speed with which Romeo forgets Rosalind (who?).

Throughout the play, but especially in Act I, the Montagues and Capulets are hasty in how fast they take offense at one another's actions.

And of course, to jump the other end of the play, Romeo kills himself hastily, and then Juliet does too.
