One example of a quote about Juliet's inner conflict occurs shortly after she discovers that Romeo is an enemy to her family. She states "my only love sprung from my only hate,too early seen unknown and known too late." This shows her struggles between her love for Romeo and her loyalty to her family.

Hey John!

Lots of people tend not to notice the subtle resistance in Juliets first scene, which can be read in such a way that Juliet can be seen as sad, so she will conform to her mothers wishes but not willing. 'I'll look to like if looking liking move' notice the reluctance.
