Romeo and Juliet

In Act III, Scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet, Lady Capulet, who thinks Juliet is lamenting the death of Tybalt, tells her, "Therefore have done. Some grief shows much love;/But much grief shows still some want of wit." What is the best paraphrase of this passage?

a. Therefore, keep crying. Eventually, you will work out your grief.
b. We all feel grief at a person's death, whether we loved the person or not.
c. So stop grieving. Some mourning is a natural result of love, but too much grief is foolish.
d. Our grief is the best evidence that we have loved a person, but it is not right to overdo it.***
