I'm reading act 2 of Romeo and Juliet and I have no idea what the quote, "that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" means. Could someone please help me thanks:)

    A rose smells sweet. If we called a rose by a different name it would still smell sweet.

    Check this site.

    If you read the site I posted, you'd find what Juliet meant when she said that quote.

    What is keeping Romeo and Juliet from being out in the open with their love?

    The family feud. Is this what the quote means that if we call Romeo something besides a Montague he would still be known as a Montague.

    You're getting there.

    Juliet says she'd love Romeo no matter what his name is or who is family is.

  • Thanks Mrs. Sue!! -
