What is a good quote for Romeo and Juliet?

What is a good quote for me to explain that it is important to think before you act? In the play, Romeo and Juliet?


Thanks

-Allyson
I was thinking of something between Romeo and Juliet themselves, it would be helpful in my essay. I've already searched google and couldn't find anything so I thought I'd ask you.
