Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Scene 1 Quote: Black Fate

“This day’s black fate on moe days doth depend, This but begins the woe others must end.” -Romeo, Act 3, Scene 1, Romeo and Juliet

This talks about how the tragedy that happened today will affect the future, and how this is only the beginning of the woe (distress) that must be stopped.

The black fate refers to the death of Mercutio, and “…moe (more) days doth (does) depend” tells us that this day’s events will affect the days to come.
